A Pat Burns story about John Kordic
John Kordic was a problem with my team. When Jean Perron was the coach here, Kordic would come into the office, yelling and screaming about not playing enough.
He would threaten to slap Perron around, and would get his way. He tried that with me once. The first week I picked up an ash tray. I threw it at him. The ash tray missed by about half an inch. Crashed all over the wall. Kordic went out of the room saying, ‘This man is crazy.’
