He sounds like a nice guy who likes attention from anywhere he can get it. My mother in law actually went to high school with him, Gerard Gallant and their play-by-play guy, George Matthews.
Gare, I must say, I am really enjoying the book so far. I normally slog through books slowly because I quickly lose interest after starting one, only reading a few pages at a time.
But I've read a little more than half your book in two sittings, I have enjoyed it greatly. You have done a fantastic job. As a journalist myself, you lived out my dream in that time with the Jackets.
