Paul and Joe have had a massive influence on how much I love my job. I've come to learn that hockey is what I do, it's a part of me but I also know there are a lot of different things out there. I've just got a great balance with everything.

I was fortunate to play for Toronto one year (1998-99) and I quickly realized what that team means to the city and to Ontario -- it's the Maple Leafs Nation.
