And yes, as you can imagine, he's more sick of talking about it than we are.

The fallout cannot be denied though, I think you can make an argument that, if not for that trade and the subsequent growth of hockey in nontraditional markets in the southwestern United States, there wouldn't be a young man from Scottsdale, Arizona playing for the Toronto Maple Leafs today.

It goes beyond that obviously. I get it was a big deal, though I don't think I can quite fathom just how big of a culture shock it was for people north of the border.
