Players you liked that had short stints and were traded?

I think you may have your stories mixed up, though. I'm not sure if he did the Forsberg move in that game, but in his first game as a Flyer after being traded for Forsberg he won the game with the Forsberg move on a breakaway in the 3rd (an absolutely sick story).

Bring him back, Homer!
You may be right, and it's very possible I combined the two into one wicked game in my mind! If it was two separate games, then those are my two favourite Upshall games!
I also loved Markov and Timander.
I wish the Flyers had held onto Downie, but it was far better for him to go elsewhere. Kukkonen as well, but that may be more disgust with how badly he got screwed over by the coaching staff than being a fan of his play.
