- Had him go to the rink at 5:30am by himself to workout
- Saw Smyth being treated differently. Welcomed with open arms while he was treated miserablely.

- "I wasn't a bust".... "I worked hard".... "It wasn't having fun so it was hard to be motivated..." "It wasn't about the money"... "All my confidence went out the window when I first step into the NHL".
Wow. What an ass. Slats first mistake wasn't his treatment of this guy. It was drafting him in the first place. And beyond that...its been several years since Bonsignore was anywhere near the NHL radar so this is a rant coming about 10 years too late.
