There's one story Espo left out of the book. When the Devils and Lightning played in the playoffs (can't remember the year), one of the Devils beat writers was a woman named Kisha. She and Espo got into a pretty heated argument, and I think the last think he said to her was something to the extent of, I wouldn't talk to you if you stood on your head. There were other sexist and rude remarks, one of the Florida papers published the incident, and Espo was fined by the league. Pretty embarrassing stuff.
Also, when asked about the Espo book, Clarke denied the most of what Espo wrote. Granted, Clarke isn't the most honest guy in the business, but I tend to believe him over Espo.
