Good luck getting out of there Boys. Cant remember the exact details but got perturbed with someone one time, for a lark held this player from the window of a hotel by his ankles some floors up from the ground. He was only 5'10" and weighed in at 180lbs, but according to John Ferguson the hardest bodychecker he'd ever encountered; to Jacques Plante the heaviest & hardest shot he'd ever encountered and thats sayin somethin huh? Famous Tim Horton Bear Hug. Like a Boa Constrictor. Squeeze the air right out of guys with height & weight advantages to the point of nearly passing out if they wanted a "go" with him. Pretty hilarious really. Coke bottle thick glasses off the ice. Nicknamed Clark Kent / Superman.
The other stuff I knew about him, never heard the vending machine story though. The player in question that he reportedly dangled out of the window was Dick Duff, so the story goes that I heard.
