Imagine that

One of my colleagues at the paper tells me that Brett Hull, my favorite blowhard, really is a nice guy.

Following the Dallas Stars-Tampa Bay Lightning game last week, my colleague, a former NHL beat writer, was part of a group of media types, including Hull, that retired to a nearby sports bar for some frosty beverages and a huge plate of chicken wings.

Hull, who does radio work for the Stars besides working for NHL on NBC, was instantly recognized.

"He could barely get through a wing without someone coming up for a picture or an autograph," my colleague said. "He was very nice about it."

Count me in as another Hull hater, but I'll give him his due: despite his past comments about hating autograph collectors, he will sign, and will do tons via mail.

I've heard of him constantly doing 3 to 5 cards per request through the Stars.

To hell with Hull.....he stole what was rightfully ours and cheated doing it....and put Bettman right next to him for not reviewing the goal....Hate rhymes with Hull...right?
