Rimer is a blow hard name dropping suck up. Other than that he's a great guy. As far as "well respected" that really depends on who you are talking to in the hockey community. If you suck up to any team media guy at the local watering hole or some event long enough you are bound to get some free tickets. That isn't anything new, I've witnessed half a dozen times. I don't bother asking for free tickets, so I haven't gotten any myself. Gare gave out more and more tickets the drunker he got.

I'll be honest, I'm really nervous about anyone in hockey that is actually best buds with Rimer and not simply humoring him.
