And unlike a wuss like Harper, he didn't need a helper to start his gum for him, he did it all on his own. Harper was booed mercilessly at the Forum for chewing soft gum and fans never forgave for the time he chewed a caramel.
Larose was the best ever at getting really mad right after the linesman arrived. Lucky for his opponent or he'd have been in big trouble. If Harper ever tried to down a caramel while skating, there'd have been a multi player pile up, could've wiped out the entire Hillman family.
