will not be playing for the Bruins. He has been clearly the best player in this competition, but the B's are scared to death of inviting him to camp. I grew up and played with him. He has amazing skills. Skates like the wind, hits like a Mack truck and can finish. In all sincerity, there are not that many guys in the league who have the all around skills that he has. He was in jail for 2.5 years and three months later he was playing with Mario Lemieux, that is all you need to know about his skill set. In saying that, the drawbacks are:
Not one team will invite him to camp.
He has been permanently banned from two summer leagues in the Boston area. these leagues are phenomenal summer leagues where NHLer's past and present such as Poti, Greer, McGinnis, Heinze, Emma, Mottau, Dunham all skate and play. It is a relaxed, semi competitive league where most guys are in it for the conditioning and the beer afterwards. Billy tries to fight everybody during the game. He has been told he is not welcome.
DKH as a correction, not important though he does come from a nice family, but onlt has one brother Nicky, who went to BU, and a sister Alexandra who lives in San Francisco.
