LI i agree
JR is a player you love to hate, i liked the guy all through his career just hated him when he came to filthy cause hes not someone you want to play against 6 times a year

if there was one guy i wanted signed when he was a UFA it was JR but we never had a chance, but he is fun to watch, he plays the game the way its suppossed to be played: he hits, he scores, he passes, he will even fight and he speaks up

I was glad he went after the nhl and the refs, yeah in the end he kinda apologized, but the nhl was not doing a good job of officiating and it was hurting the sport and the players, and by him speaking up, something that happens constantly in basketball and a good amount in footbal but is rare in hockey, maybe he did open some eyes (hopefully the refs) and force them to call a better game because they know someone is going to take shots at them

anyway i wish JR the best
