He'd tell me about all the times that he was feeling good or slumping and how sometimes even when you are playing well, the pucks just aren't bouncing. It's amazing how much we think the same about the game. We do a lot of sitting around and talking, and it's really helped me.">>From the Newsday feature on John Tavares, talking about the impact of Doug Weight.
