What a terrible era though. That was a dark time. My, how things have changed.
Couple of months ago I was watching one of my old hockey tapes from the mid 90s and they were reporting on the Roy/Thibault trade. Houle and the media were all bragging that the deal was done as fast as possible to get rid of a bad situation. That really weirded me out.

I mean. Wow. You trade Patrick Roy and you want to seal the deal "as fast as possible."
