I was just on the Oilers website and tonight they honor Brett Callighen, one of the really fine Oilers back in the late 70s. Gritty guy, 99's lw for a time and he had some skill too. One of the few NHLers who also played for an extended period in the IHL (he played for Flint, Kalamazoo and I think one other team, maybe Greensboro).
His eye injury (from Brad McCrimmon's stick) was awful.
I'd suggest they retire Lee Fogolin's number to begin next season and maybe honor guys like Stan Weir and Rusty Patenaude the way they're doing Callighen tonight.
No doubt though, this is a first class move.
