Looks like we don't have salary information. Sorry!


#Quote
1[on his performance record in recreational hockey] I suck. I'm terrible. I'm the worst player in the tournament.
2I think hockey has limited what players have been able to do. I think we've spent a lot of time in Canada beating the personality out of players. Anytime they have personality, the press generally jumps on them. I want to create a space where we're open to a player being a human being, first of all, but where they can also be interesting and funny and outspoken. My job is not to run a dressing-room; that's the coach's job. My job is to connect people to the players they love, and there's lots of ways we can do that. I know a lot of these people are interested in the next step of their development. So we on this broadcast want to create this type of space.
3[on his appointment as host of 'Hockey Night in Canada'] There's a lot of people on Twitter saying, 'Oh, eff that guy' because I don't approach this as a straight-up sports gig. But no one out there can out-sport me.
4[on his TV hosting roles] This is what I do. I don't even have any dependents in my life. I don't even have a plant.
