Not sure what that incident relates to either. I tuned out of Dan Russell around 2000- 2002, somewhere in there. He lost his mind when they did not tap him for the play by play job and then there was some bitter fallout between him and Brian Burke. The day Brian Burke was turfed by the Canucks, Russell's went on the radio and basically seemed to intimate that Burke had got him fired from 'NW (or at least he suspected he had), but that they had buried the hatchet since then. Russell is a petty, petty man, than could never let go of the past and used his position to exact revenge on the Canucks for what he perceived were personal slights. It's a very sad, really. His show in the 80's and 90's was some of the best Sportstalk radio around. I would venture to say that it outshined anything we have seen since. Shows like Halford and Brough or Sekeres and Price are good, but there was really nothing like that late night radio show he put on . I still, stupidly, hold out some hope he will one day regain his senses and come back and put the old show back on the way it used to be, but based on his twitter account, that's not in the cards.
