DS always did the 'Keys to the game' with Fred. In 1990 before Game 7 with the Whalers Fred asked him what was the key to the game - DS replied "Score more goals than Hartford."

The Globe has an excerpt from the book today
I remember that one

I also remember a playoff game vs Montreal and the camera focused on Patrick Roy. Derek says "And there's Patrick Ru-wah. Should be Roy (as in Roy Rogers). But it's Ru-wah."

I also remember when he came back from the WHA and John Pierson was interviewing someone between periods. Derek just comes on the set in street clothes (he was inactive, apparently), sits down next down to both of them (chain smoking, of course) and starts with funny faces and antics while poor Pierson is trying to conduct the interview. I was about 9 years old at the time and I thought he was insane.

He was a gem.
