“Bobby Probert was a beauty. He was not just a teammate, he was my buddy. As tough as he was on the ice, off the ice he was a humble guy with a great sense of humour. I’m glad he got this chance to tell his story.” --- Doug Gilmour

There had to have been lot of good times with his family or why would they have stuck together.
When he mentioned how he didn't believe it was a shock for Tiger Woods wife and Sandra Bullock because they would have known who they married & basically saying Dani knew who he was. I was blown away. Why would he want his kids to know about his cheating???
