Not really a better place for this, but I loved one of the stories Oates told at his HOF induction last night.

Per Friedman:

8. Adam Oates said he knew he'd arrived in the NHL when he and Brett Hull stood listening to the national anthems before Game 7 of the 1990 Norris Division final against Chicago. Hull nudged Oates and told him to look up. A fan had two dummies hung in effigy -- one with Hull's number, the other with Oates's. Of course, he used this as motivation, right? "No, we got killed," he said. Final score was 8-2.
