I know that was meant as a joke, but he was a cultural icon in the province. Someone who was able to maintain a public presence through many of the societal changes in the province without getting dragged out into the politics. A true statesman as well as one of the great hockey players. I'm 26 and was born long after he played his final game, but this was still depressing.
