Read some excerpts and listen to the interview here:

How many stories will you really be able to tell at the “Unplugged” event?

“For Brett, unplugged doesn’t seem to be the right word because I don’t know if he was ever plugged in. He’s never been shy about giving his opinion. I’m the same way…though I was a little more secretive about how I used my sarcasm than he was.”

What do you remember most about that time?

“The hockey was fantastic. (Hull and I) were both young guys. You feel invincible and the team was playing great. It was just so much fun to watch Hull score every day. We’d all talk about it like this is incredible. Honestly…it really is kind of a whirlwind. It happens so fast. You don’t appreciate it as much until later. It was a great time.”
