Hustle and TEH GRITTZZ

Great piece from Ellen Etchingham on the hows and whys of hockey hustle. Why do fans cheer when a player hustles and boo when he doesn't, despite the player being the same guy he always was? And why does patience trump hustle every time? If you can't find an Islander to fit into the scenarios she talks about, you need to read it again. Etchingham's is very insightful and readable, and brings a fresh perspective to long form hockey writing. She writes for The Score now (as does Justin Bourne) and you can follow her on twitter at @theoryofice, which is also her blog.
