Rob Blake, on the eve of his Hockey Hall of Fame induction, made sure to stop by MayorsManor for an extended lap around the rink. We covered every major story in his career and you’ll want to hear some of the things he shared. Among the highlights were – the truth behind what happened before he was traded out of Los Angeles, if he ever agreed to waive his no-trade clause during his last tenure with the Kings, did he push Ron Hextall out as Assistant General Manager, the rocky times of his relationship with Dean Lombardi, how he helped Andy Murray get hired as a coach, if he has any regrets from his playing days, which current Kings defenseman he would like to be paired with and so much more.
After the Blake interview, be sure to catch our other Hockey Hall of Fame conversation with Mike Modano here. He too tells some great stories and offers some interesting opinions – including which current NHL player most resembles him at his peak [hint: it’s an LA Kings forward].
