Ok, couldn't put the darn book down.

Yeah some other great stories in there. The vets giving an 18 year old Rick Nash a lesson on how to split the bill for dinner. Getting called up to Columbus while waiting to have his foot x-rayed. Getting waived by the Jackets 3 times, The PEI Mafia. That he demanded Douggie Mac trade him to Winnipeg (yes you read that right) and why. Lots of great, and not so great, names from the Jackets past make an appearance.

And outside all of the Columbus stuff, it's just an awesome book. Dealing with moving so often, lots of great stories of the road, being hungover and getting pranked by Gretzky, what "gameday" is like for the healthy scratch, avoiding the coaches when you know you're going to get sent down, being on the ice for the Moore - Bertuzzi incident, trying out the DEL, and getting 2 hand slashed by a 10 year old Chris Pronger.
