    He angrily yanked the team out of Hartford when state governments refused to finance a new arena.
    He chose to relocate the team to Raleigh instead of Charlotte when he announced the relocation of the Whalers.
    He had the team play in Greensboro for 2 seasons while the RBC Centre was being built. It only drew 3,000 fans a game, questioning the viability of NHL Hockey in the Carolinas.

    He dismantles his teams frequently.

    He gave Paul Maurice a chance to become a head coach at 28 years of age (1995).

    Unlike most money losing owners who threaten to relocate, he is willing to stick it out in Raleigh and find new ways how to get fans to attend games.
    He was aggressive in making sure the NHL got their salary cap to benefit teams like his.
    He is a single father of three sons, after his wife succumbed to cancer.
    He has a cancer research foundation named after his late wife.
