    A stay at home, tough d-man before a fighting enforcer.

    There aren't D-men like him in the league anymore. Totally different game now – and NOT for the better.

    Doppelganger: Ken Daneyko and Stone Cold Steve Austin.

    It’s a man’s world and I say that because only men can try to kill each other at one moment in time and later on can respect each other for their efforts and sometimes become friends I’ve had it happen to me on more than one occasion

    There were a few Devils I found hard to hate. Ken Daneyko was one of them.

    I saw Daneyko and Lindros have a dandy in an untelevised preseason game.
