The boys swap some stories about Ace Bailey who perished in the 911 attack and also played with the Oilers in those days. Ron talks about his time in pro hockey in Italy where he put up over 4 points per game’ what is was like running a player agency for a long time and why a single comment from his client caused him to stop playing golf for 20 years.
