Sports Executive
    He was considered an agitator by hockey pundits.
    He was part of a tri-captain system with Lanny McDonald and Jim Peplinski in Calgary.
    He resigned his position as Flames head coach after they were defeated 11-0 in a game (March 1, 1992).
    He traded Doug Gilmour out of spite in a 10 player trade with Cliff Fletcher, in which he took a paltry return in comparison to what he gave Toronto (January 2, 1992).
    His draft record in both Calgary and Minnesota was not very good, as he failed to land any game-changing prospects.
    He and Jacques Lemaire never employed a permanent team captain during their tenure with the Wild, electing to employ a rotational captaincy instead.
    He was a member of the Montreal Canadiens team that won four consecutive Stanley Cup titles in the 1970's.
    He had a memorable scrap with Marty McSorley, in which he took the latter's jersey and shredded it with his skates.
    He worked his way through the Flames organization in various capacities following his retirement as a player.
    He served as the first general manager in the history of the the Minnesota Wild franchise.
    He stayed true to his word and refused to trade his homegrown stars he developed with the Wild.
    As a general manager, he wasn't afraid to take a risk, even it it meant taking scorn from fans and media alike.
