Learning what it meant to be a pro is paying off for Kapanen

Kapanen and Keefe's relationship dates back to the AHL. There has been some friction along the way, but there are benefits, too. Keefe, still adjusting to life in the NHL, already knows what buttons to push. And he’s seen Kapanen quietly put together a productive stretch with nine points to show for his last 10 games.

There's a lot more in this article than just the title topic. Gives you a great "behind the scenes" peek into a week in the "old" NHL days

In this week's mailbag from Dan Murphy, he catches up with former Canucks Tom Sestito, who recalls one of Vancouver's whackiest weeks in memory -- which culminated with John Tortorella angrily going towards Calgary's dressing room.
