bingo. hrudey. playing goal back then, i wanted to be smith, but was happy when hrudey came along. was more fun to scream "save hrudey!!!" hrudey had a interesting net presence, and was pretty smart too. see below at about 2:16. that hop was to avoid being used to bank in a puck. niiiiice.
even though it's easier to be happy about the 4 cups team -obviously-there was always something to me about that next wave that i liked. those guys had to try to live up to a standard. even though they didn't get the fifth, certain players (pilon, hrudey, patty) seemed like they were islanders because they tried their hardest to live up to that standard... it's been a looooooong time, but i'm real happy JT is an islander. i feel like if there's anyone that can help restore the standard, it's him.
