In Larry Sloman's A season in Hell book about a late 70's Ranger team Vadnais is the most unpopular player in the locker room--though Mike Nykoluk an ambitious assistant coach under Shero is disliked even more. I never had a huge problem with Vadnais as a player but he wasn't nearly as good as Park. Carol though had some offensive skill and a very nasty on ice demeanor at times--would not have been fun to play against--he was very liberal with working other players over with his stick and I can remember him walloping Bobby Clarke in the face with it one time which pretty much caused a riot and it was a deliberate act--of course Clarke was as bad if not worse--he was just surrounded by a team full of goons who were always saving him from retribution.
