Still reporting to Doug MacLean? Talk about being marginalized.

Don's a great guy, the type you'd go to war with, maybe not the toughest guy in the fight, but the last to run.

An earlier question: I didn't approach every team, not quite. Can you blame me for not asking New Jersey? That was never going to happen. Ditto, say, media unfriendly Colorado. Some other teams weren't about to have anything to do with me ... some old grudges by GMs or whomever. I know about half the gms and agms and more scouting directors and the like, some just professionally, some socially. So I narrowed it down. But even guys I'm friendly with (Doug Risebrough, Doug Wilson) didn't return calls ... must have thought it was a prank. I thought I was going to get shut out until Doug MacLean came along.

Re: 1992s. I'm really not that far ahead. I'll ask around.
