If they were booing Steven McDonald

I also thought to announce Jed Ortmeyer as "The Future of the Franchise" is either very incorrect or very very disconcerting.
That would have been classless, but they were booing the mention of Sathers name.
The wife got a kick out of it and it looked like Steven was going to say something clever so it's not a big deal.
As for Ortmeyer and the future of the franchise? a little over the top, but there's not been one Stanley Cup winner that hasn't had a player like Ortmeyer on the team.
A solid defensive player that by mistake will start to score about 10 goals a year. Look at Kris Draper, a part time player in the NHL for his first 4-5 years and he's a very good player (with this year being an annomoly) and while it would be great to have another Draper (which I doubt) a poor mans version of Draper is a nice thing to have.
