? I can see it with young guys who know their season is gonna be spent riding the farm team bus.... but this guy is getting the slip and now plopped in the lineup before the bon voyage? Can't say I've seen that before....
PBP from tonights game...
"....30 seconds to go....Kukkonen takes the puck from the boards, circles his own net for the breakout.. and he snaps around and rockets it past Niitymakki........oh and whats this, he jumps back to the bench and .. he's knocked out Stevens....."
Unless I missed the joke part of that him being in the lineup ..
actually i remember it happening with the flyers before...luke richardson was waived and then went on to have a great rest of the season for the flyers. i forget the exact season
