Great hockey player, yes. Player who's on my good side for his play alone, yes. Guy who should be given a standing ovation for something other than his play, not a chance.
That said, he'll probably move people from their seats by his presence alone, it'd be kind of nice to actually be there to see how everyone reacts, and not how sportsnet spins it.
I think it should be a good reception. I'm not quite sure how they'll react, but I think it will be generally positive.
I hope Kipper goes tonight so we can see if he's 'for real'
Any word on him?
