I was ready to pack it in and he actually took me aside to give me that boost of confidence to keep going and keep fighting.

"I respect him so much - not just because of his position with the team, but because of the person he is."

shows you that Gainey brought more positives to the table than just those we can see on paper.
He did this with Darche too, recently.
