Which Players Have You Guys Met?

I was wondering. Which players have you met? Were they nice or were they rude? I want to know! My girl friend met Ribeiro and said he was the biggest dick and wouldn't sign an autograph for anyone. Also said he was rude etc. (It's funny cause I met Jose Theodore and Shane Corson at a fund raiser for intellectually handicapped children and they were scoffing away on all the free food ignoring the kids for the first hour they were there until George Springate told them to stop being jerks.)

Hmmmm thinking back ....

Met Roy at an autograph signing for Koho.

Met Glen Healy, Kirk Muller, Glenn Murray, Theo Fleury, Wendell Young, Cam Russell (his mother was my Primary teacher), Paul Henderson, Don Cherry, Yvon Cournyer, Red Story .....

Glenn Murray was the least friendly. A charity golf tournament in your home province, and you make it as though you are put out by having to sign a few autographs. I was 15 at the time, and may have misread him, but I wasn't the only one to think it.

Off-Topic but I met Pierre Maguire.

Game 7 2003 Finals Devils against Ducks he was walking around the arena and I talked to him for maybe 2 minutes. Seems like a pretty fun guy to be around and watch a game, but this was before his permanent hard-don for Dion and I don't remember him whining about one-piece sticks as much back then.

I haven't met many players...Higgins comes to mind, apart from that I met a bunch of Bruins players one time in Boston. I had tickets behind their bench in 2003 or 2004 I forget...but I think it was 04. Near the end of the season when they had loaded up and gotten Nylander, Gonchar, etc. Most of them were cool, I got the chance to talk to most of them during warm-up, pre-skate, but the nicest one was Jiri Slegr, and the biggest *******(the only guy who didn't want to talk to me or even shake my hand) was Martin Lapointe.

-Trevor Linden
-Cory Cross
-Sergei Samsonov
-Jeff Friesen

I have urinated beside Bob Gainey,Murray Wilson, and Yvon Lambert.

I watched a game beside Henri Richard in the Forum, no urinating involved.

Ray Bourque, Steve Kasper, and Gary Galley used to play in a Greeenfield Park softball tournament, Galley took an opposite field double away from me.

Ovechkin - World Juniors. I was sitting in front of his dad and struck up a conversation with him, I ended up meeting Ovechkin after the game and got an autographed card fromhim

Gretzky, Brett Hull - at a resort here in Cape Breton

All 3 were very easy going and were friendly

I met John Vanbiesbrook and Ron Francis's brother is Sault-Ste-Marie... sold Francis's brother a cross country ski package at a ski swap

I saw a few Buffalo Sabres players at Caveau Scechwan in the ByWard Market, Ottawa... they were about 10. Derek Roy was there for sure, maybe Briere but I don't remember. I remember them whistling at my girlfriend though

I work with the guy who founded the Ottawa Senators/Corel Centre but haven't met any Sens players. I saw Chris Phillips at the Ottawa Airport though last year. I had my vintage Habs toque on and he smiled when he saw me looking at him... so I give him the finger (joke)

Never met any Habs players though


edit: actually, I did meet Martin Havlat and Marian Hossa at a Suite 34 in Ottawa. It was the night after the last time they got beat by the leafs in the playoffs... I shook their hands and said "tough loss, be strong" haha, true story

ALSO just in passing, Had dinner with Prince Andrew in Barbados while I was staying with friends ( Kifen Simpson's estate), back in 1995. We were 8 at the table. He was there to oversea the building of his Barbados Estate right next to the Simpson estate.
Although not a Hab, still a person of interest

Not counting those I've played with and against....

- Jose Theodore came to my school when I was a kid and he played for the Riverains in Midget AAA. I have his autographed card to this day. Kinda cool to have the autograph of an NHL'er from back when he was just a freckled faced kid.

- I've had the fortune to meet and chat with Mark Streit on a night I was at Bell Centre and he wasn't playing. It was awesome. I really, really believe the man had no idea he'd ever be in the NHL in 2005-06 and later.

- Met Pierre Mondou when I went to the LNAH's Mission Sorel-Tracy's pre-camp. He told me I was good enough to make the team, I told him there was too much fighting and too many glorified beer leaguers still in the league and that I would rather stay home than be in there. He laughed HEARTILLY and told me he heard that all the time.

Now I regret saying it. For whatever reason. I'm still on Mission's regional protection roster, or whatever's that called. Whatever it's worth because I think they could lay claim to every breathing human within a certain distance of their arena and it would work. I'll be at camp again next year. Watch me. I'm actually training for it.

- Met Stephane Richer at Mission games. He's a regular.

If you wanna talk non-hockey people, I can say I had relations that were at least as shoddy as Jose Theodore's when I was in high-school. I had dinner every day at this restaurant that was in this mall located nearby ESBG high school in Tracy where my mom worked, and a couple of times a week I ate with Mom Boucher's nephew, brother, and SON.

His nephew was a bit older than me but he and his dad were long time regulars so me and the guy got along just fine. He was kinda nerdy but he was a physical dead-ringer for his uncle. His dad was a look-alike of Revolver Ocelot from the original MSG game. They weren't THAT shaddy. But Mom's Son was quite the...hmmm...businessman. Francis was his name and he lived in Contrecoeur, in something I can only call a mansion, next door to my first high school sweetheart. I visited.

Alot and actually got to play against a few from the TO area as well.

Amongst current Habs, Koivu, Komisarek and Bouillon. Bouillon was a bit quiet, but Komisarek and Koivu appeared to be really good guys.

As for the person who said Ribs is a dick, that's the impression I got as well. But I met Theodore as well, and he seemed like an alright chap. Theodore was nice enough, through a common friend, to get my nephew a signed cap (by Theo only) and a jersey signed by all the Habs.
