After I think, the world juniors, players actually took his jersey and burned it. He would always talk about opening a go kart track, and how his dad was big on that.

I have a hard time feeling bad for a guy like that. He had the skills, for sure. But he had a lot of red flags, and I feel resentment because it was another Sather beauty.
Denis Bonvie could've wrote that book years ago and when it was happening. Bonvie was outspoken about Bonsignores lack of drive and criticized him in the org soundly. Some of the comments were public.
