Any credible news outlet links? I looked quickly and couldn't find anything.
Well it is no claim to straight from McPhee's and Leonisis' mouths but it is the best I could do on short notice...

I'm sure the Linden incident he is talking about is the one where Linden accidentally knocked over Oates' water bottle at practice one day...

And Linden went on to play 450+ more NHL games after leaving Washington. Sure he wasn't the guy who led the Canucks to the cup final in '94 anymore but he was definitely no bum.
