When I was a kid I was able to stay after a Wings game and met quite a few Islanders players. I was a Wings fan, but Mike Bossy was my favorite player. I still have the rookie card he autographed for me. I had several people tell me they were shocked that Billy Smith stopped and chatted with me as he had a reputation or something. I knew he had one on the ice.
I think it helped that I wore an Islanders jersey-style shirt that night.
