"Donovan, I don't know if you're playing right wing for us or left wing for them."

To Shean Donovan, after the winger had a bad period. His centre at the time, Mike Peca, still cracks up every time he remembers the game.

"There are only three things you do in a situation like that. You can fire the puck off the glass, you can 'F' off or you can 'F' off."

To a defenceman, after a careless giveaway in his own zone.

"Talk to my ass, I've got a headache."

To a number of refs whose explanation he wasn't buying.

"Shut that off, shut that off. You're going to put Bickell to sleep. That's the lullaby they play for him every night before he goes to bed."

To a young girl singing the national anthem during a practice as a tuneup to performing it before the next night's game. The referenced player is former winger Bryan Bickell, who was going through a particularly ineffective stretch.

"I guess now they'll know I did more than smoke cigars and drink Ex."

After receiving many honours, including having a rink named after him, having the OHL's coach of the year award named after him and being inducted in the Hall of Fame.

"He's standing there like a pillar of (crap) shovelling marshmallows to the net"

To a defenceman trying to shoot the puck past some shin pads at the blueline.

"Can you hit the net now?"

To an erratic forward, after he moved the net to the corner of the rink.

"You mean to tell me when you wake up in the morning, that's the best you're going to feel all day?"

To a fellow OHL coach who doesn't drink.
