I never heard that story. But regardless, he said many times that he didn't like them and would never offer one himself.

Let's face it, the man is a hockey dinosaur, one geological epoch ahead of Don Cherry.

But he is a character, and has character and I find myself liking him as a man. Just not so much as a GM.
