Shorthanded was a great book that I am proud to own also. Long live the Seals!

Patey was an excellent Blue for several seasons, but Merrick was indeed a key pivot man for the Isles during their dynastic run. Cleveland would've done well to hang on to him, but thought they'd get more out of Parise and Jean Potvin. They did get a nice boost after the trade, then of course fell apart. Minnesota would've like to have had Merrick as part of the merger since Parise and Potvin were essentially winding down.
