Considered by many to be one of the greatest centers to play the game, Phil Esposito won numerous scoring titles, primarily during his tenure with the Boston Bruins. He was the first player to score 100 points in a season, but one example of his scoring touch. After retiring as a player, he was a hockey executive who helped expand the league into the Sun Belt by being a force behind the expansion Tampa Bay Lightning.

Esposito was born on February 20, 1942, in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, the son of Patrick and Frances Esposito. His younger brother Tony Esposito, also played in the NHL as a goalie. It was the elder Esposito who forced his little brother to play goal for him when they were kids.

A friend of mine living in Sault Ste Marie recently told me that Phil Esposito is not well liked in that City. I was amazed at that comment and inquired why, but did not get a good response to my query. Can you shed some light on why he is not liked in the SOO?
