Seems he got worked up a bit too often for a guy who declared of himself "I'm fair and broad-minded and I look at things pretty logically". Squeamish fellow. Too much Transcendental Meditation?
-"I don't think anyone contributed as much to Ottawa in hockey as I have. I've never felt as though I've ever received any gratitude from the people of Ottawa... if ever the opportunity arose for me to go back to Ottawa to play again, I would never go back."
-"...when they announced the Player-of-the-Game, it went to Bobby Orr... this is something I don't understand and I don't think I ever will."
-"I thought I was probably the best performer on our team - but Bobby Orr got the award again... I don't think he was deserving of the award twice and certainly not three times... I think it's political and I think it's unjust."
