So Eric Lindros came down and sorta snubbed them off, and right behind him was Pat Quinn and Tie Domi, so they made a comment like "Oh well we will talk to Pat and Tie, we like them better anyway" and they both came up laughing. Tie signed some autographs and went on the bus, but they ended up chatting to Pat for a good 25 minutes while all the players came down
Funny thing is he punches out Orr in Boston Gardens, (tough guy) then he goes and gets a law degree (smart guy) He does all that he has done in hockey which is legendary. He is still the type of guy that screams "Sandra get the door" during our interview and then says "sorry guys thats the furnace guy" hes just a real guy you can look up to. you can just tell he loves the game but more importantly the people in it.
He thought he was going to the finals with the Canes too
