My friend met him at a Starbucks when he played for the Hawks. Very nice guy. Too bad his best years where while he was drugged up out of his mind.

He married my buddies cousin - My buddy lived with them while he played for the Hawks in a SWEET pad up in Lincoln Park - We use to play Techmo Bowl all the time - Super chilled out and very quiet guy - Sadly, Steve is right - His best years were in Detroit when he was all coked up and beaten the fuck outta guys on the ice

Damn. Rip Bobbie! Truely the "ENFORCER" The guy could play a hell of a game to say the least. And never took shit from anyone. 1 hell of a guy.

The guy was a great fighter... wasnt much of a player.... He couldnt stay clean or sober.... so many arrests, so much cocain, so much booze...... Even when he was on the broadcasting side after being forced to hang em up due to his drug and booze prob. Still he was a great fighter.......
