During the 2010-11 Stanley Cup run, the offday dinners for Tim Thomas were usually Italian. The dining mates always included Adam McQuaid, David Krejci, and Jordan Caron, as well as several others. The conversations weren’t always about hockey.
“I got to pick his brain on his opinions on certain things,” McQuaid recalled with a smile. “I was always open to listening to him talk. I think everyone knows he wasn’t shy to voice his opinion on different things. I was always open to hearing what he had to say.”
