Tie Domi a Clarkie Fan...

Read on, great article about Max Domi, Tie's kid who is projected to be one of the top picks in the OHL draft. Apparently not exactly a chip off the old block, this kid can score... and he is diabetic, and wears #16.

http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/story/?id=338281


Quote:
It probably isn't the best week to be introducing you to Max Domi.

That's because we are obliged to report that the 15-year-old son of retired NHL tough guy Tie Domi was suspended this week for eight games for his part in a line brawl in a Greater Toronto Hockey League (GTHL) minor midget AAA game between his Don Mills Flyers and their arch rivals, the Toronto Marlies.

So right away, you're going to start connecting the dots... son of Tie Domi... line brawl... 8-game suspension... a real chip off the old block, right?

Wrong.

The reason for getting to know Max is not because he's a minor hockey enforcer cut from the same cloth as his dad but because he's precisely the opposite -- a talented, highly-skilled playmaking, goal-scoring centre who is, by most accounts, the top prospect available in this year's Ontario Hockey League priority selection, aka the minor midget draft.

"Oh, jeez, no, I would never want him to play the game the way I played it," Tie Domi said of his son. "I did what I had to do to play in the NHL but Max is a totally different player from me. He's highly skilled. He makes plays. He scores goals. He can play with an edge but I would much rather it be a Mark Messier type edge than my type of edge. I just want him to live his dream and be himself. He doesn't need to fight tough guys to do that."
Quote:
On the way home in the car from Sick Kids' Hospital, Max asked Tie about Bobby Clarke and Tie told him the story of how when Tie was a kid growing up in Belle River, Ont., Tie wanted so badly to be like Bobby Clarke that he knocked out his own two front teeth to look like the Flyer captain.

"That's when he changed from No. 13 to No. 16," Tie said. "Having Mario Lemieux and Bobby Clarke as your inspirations, those are two pretty good role models to have."

Max was at a minor hockey tournament and Bobby Clarke happened to be there so Max's mom Leanne introduced herself to Clarke, who went to the Flyers' dressing room to talk to the kids and meet Max.

I just read that article. Pretty good stuff. Imagine his son in a Flyers jersey. I'd be psyched on that.

I watched Max Domi play in a tournament a few months ago - the kid is good. Very good.

It'll be interesting to see how he does in the OHL next year.

ha ha that'd be crazy if we drafted him, and the team reunited Tie with that clown who fell in the box.

I'm pretty sure that Tie Domi ended up giving that guy (Falcone?) tickets to a PO game in 2004. They met and shook hands, whatever.

I played hockey with a classmate of Falcone's. You have it correct.

I always had respect for domi. He would always take 15 punches to the face, just to land the one perfect punch that he wanted to make.

He was apparently a big Dave Brown fan as well.

From the article it sounds like he is most likely to go the college hockey route in the States rather than OHL.

I'm really hoping that's a ploy to make sure he gets drafted by a quality OHL team (Kitchener would be just fine, thank you!).
