I remember quite a few from some of Dick Irvin's and other books... Feel free to correct me if I get it wrong but...

word has it Jacques Plante was the biggest tightwad in NHL history. On road trips, when a bunch of Habs went out to the bars, they used to buy rounds and go around the table as each man had his turn buying for the team. Jacques had a habit of jumping up and leaving just before his turn. On one trip, he felt a heavy palm on his shoulder (I wish I could remember who it was) and was told he'll be buying for the night. He didn't go out with the team after that

This thread has definite possibilities...
