J.R.'s best quotes
By Michael Grossi, Features Editor

On the ice, Jeremy Roenick was often counted on to provide an offensive spark. Off the ice, Roenick's words were often counted on by reporters to do the same.

With his new book, "J.R: The Fast, Crazy Life of Hockey's Most Outspoken and Most Colorful Personality" now in stores, here's a look at JR's best quotes:

1. "Everybody out there who calls us spoiled because we play a game, they can kiss my ASS."
(On the 2004 lockout)

2. "We didn't lose to a bunch of scrubs. We lost to the best players in the world, bar none. And you could tell they needed it. It seemed like 50 years of emotion was pent up because they were flying out there. " (On loss to Canada in 2002 Olympic Gold Medal Game)

3. "NHL, wake up! Blaine Angus is standing right in front of me and he says he doesn't see it. What is he looking at? The National Hockey League has to step in and tell these guys to open up their eyes."

Roenick continued by calling the officiating "terrible, absolutely terrible. Blaine Angus did an absolutely terrible job."  (On a high-stick non call that left Roenick bloodied)

4. "I wanted to know where (Patrick Roy) was in Game 3. He was probably getting his jock out of the rafters of the United Center."

To which Roy famously replied: "I can't really hear what Jeremy says, because I've got two Stanley cup rings plugging my ears."
