That was after he was in one of the best trades in NYI franchise history: March 10, 1981: Jari Kaarela and Mike McEwen traded from Colorado to NY Islanders for Glenn Resch and Steve Tambellini.
That trade came about because Don Cherry blew his cool and got physical with McEwen on the bench, which surely contributed to Cherry getting fired that season.
True, and I knew that. I had McEwen. He put up the points, but how relied upon was he? At his very best, he was their 4th-6th defenseman. Not that this is
, after all, they were a great team. But he's an offensive specialist. And not even as good an offensive specialist as Jocelyn Guevremont, who is on Regina's 3rd pairing.
I'll address the top-10 scoring silliness shortly.
