I idolized him as a kid growing up. I remember watching a bit on TV about his insane training regimen and seeing him repeatedly jump side-to-side over a bench while holding a medicine ball in his hands. I immediately went into the yard and tried it and damn near killed myself. I was lucky enough to meet him a couple years ago and he couldn't have been nicer. It's a cool experience to know your childhood heroes are just like you pictured them to be.
I think Hank will certainly surpass him in the Rangers record books, but I'll never forget how he pulled me out of my seat with some of the saves he made. His athleticism was unreal. Truly one of the most spectacular acrobatic goalies of his era.
