Sorry, probably not even worthy of a thread, but i've always been a fan of him. After all, his nickname is "The Undertaker".


I laughed when the rangers drafted him at # 10, because we all know it was a huge reach...his skating sucks.


He can actually play defense and he can fight, but that's about it.


His NHL totals are abysmal....
