Well, he's not your standard douchebag, but he is a douchebag nonetheless. Mind you, he's had a pretty rough life and I really looked up to him when I was growing up.
I'll never forget the first year when he got called up to Calgary in the playoffs. He really had an instant impact. Our entire town was proud and thrilled. At the time, he played on the warriors (for about three years?) with Mike Keane (captain), Lyle Odelein, and Kelly Buchberger, who once lifted me right off the ground and threw me into a snow bank for hacking his shins during street hockey.
I went to A LOT of their games as my team sold the game programs in the audience to raise money for our travels.
Incidentally, that was also the same time that the Swift Current Broncos bus tragedy occurred. I think they may have even been travelling to Moose Jaw at the time. Graham James was the coach. Burnaby Joe Sakic was also on that bus I think as was Sheldon Keefe. Also incidentally, Lyle Odelein's brother Selmar was a star on the Regina Pats at the time. He never went anywhere though.
