And let's not forget, the organization didn't exactly give long looks to players without long NHL resumes in those days.

But, as someone else said, Gernander will get the last laugh: he's going to be a coach in the NHL soon.

Historically career minor leauge players tend to make the best big leauge coachs/Managers. I think alot of it is there Attitude of always trying to make it to that next level, & the humility of not having a big ego.
