Idolized #7 as a young adult. Gave us some awesome years. Easily one of the best defensemen ever to lace them up. Had a stick that wouldn't quit, tough as nails on the boards. When paired with Smitty, best tandem in the NHL...logged ridiculous minutes together. Turned jerky though, participating in - if not spearheading - the Nagano dorm room trashing (after sobering up, heroically offering to pay for the damages after the horses were well out of the barn, as if the notion itself would make everything right), and indirectly threatening Bettman's personal safety during the lockout. Deserves the HHOF honor. Still love his play, will always think he's a jerk. FWIW, I think it sucks that several (however inebriated) lapses in judgement reflect upon an entire career, but that's the world we live in.
