One of the amazing things about John that always struck me was his humility as well as his understanding of the game and the industry. He said he was always told he wasn't fast enough for the AHL, but everytime he was up there he put points on the board. There was not one trace of bitterness in his voice. He said he understood how the game was and was happy with his career.

Just an awesome guy.
