Esposito has always been an ingrate and big mouth. One of the greatest in NHL history
but the description applies.

For a guy that had the nickname "Trader Phil" as GM, its hilarious to hear him
shoot his mouth off about

Incidentally where was old #7 "loyalty " when he was on the golf course discussing
contracts with the WHA DURING the 1974 Stanley Cup Finals. He is as they say today a tool.
