I met a guy at Philippe's before the Kings/Coyotes game 4 (worst game of the playoffs, by the way) and he was wearing an old Widing jersey...I just couldn't resist and started talking to him about my memories of Whitey.

He was Finnish also and was attending all the Kings playoff games. Some of you may have seen him at Staples, I saw him at least a couple of times more during the Final.

I found some Whiting stuff below, for reference.
