"That's a tough thing, and as much as I would love him to play here, for my mind it would just be, you know, the old dad syndrome. And boy we've worked hard to try to get out of that; he's his own man and he's made his own image and player profile ... As much as I'd love to see it I think it would work against him."

>>#23 on the question of his son finding a free agency match with the Isles. In case you missed the Bobby Nystrom interview on NHL LIve [iTunes | or NYI site], he answered questions on that, and of course the 30th anniversary of the 1st Cup. So: Father knows best?

The worst fight I ever had was Bobby Nystrom in like '79. He had dumped the puck in by the penalty box, and they they didn't have the glass and the stanchion then, so I give him a little el-- uh, a little push. And he hit that thing so [hard]... and the crowd is roaring at the Garden and I'm looking around like, "Aw man, this is [great]." And I turn around and there's this like, Tasmanian devil comin' at me. And he hit me so many times on the top of my head {rubs top of head}, I couldn't touch my head for like three weeks -- it was that sore. It wasn't cut or anything but ... so I knew fighting wasn't a big part of my future."
