I've always called him Rick Beverly because that's what are distorted PA announcer sounded like.
People who have defended Don Waddell often refer to him picking up Peverley on waivers. They site that and the Savard deal with Calgary as evidence of his hockey acumen. I remind them that even a broken clock is right twice a day.
I was talking with Rich and his wife after a game back in Atlanta and told him the internet calls him "Raptor Jesus". They both laughed as they were already aware, I told him it was the ultimate honor and he agreed .
But yes he's aware and is a fan.
thanks for that info! he has recently been off due to injury and the Bruins are not the same team without him, we eagerly wait for the return of Raptor Jesus
