Even the superstars need to be coached once in awhile.
I can’t be a hypocrite as a coach because as a player that’s what I wanted. I wanted feedback, I wanted communication from the boss.
I grew up trying to play for the Toronto Maple Leafs, not Team Canada. Didn’t even know it existed.

I was 19 years old, pumping gas and going nowhere.

His idol was a guy that passed the ball a lot, Stanley Matthews.
My story is no different than anybody else’s.
