Haha, not sure I remember the whole story but here it goes. Back in the 80's when we relied on the Hockey News for information, there was a story about a beat writer who wrote one day that a certain player(can't remember who), that couldn't hit the net to save his life would probably miss the ocean too.

Now whether its urban legend or not, the story goes on to say the player was mad about the article and invited the writer to meet him on the pier and he would show him he could hit the ocean. The writer showed up and the player promptly shot a puck off a No Fishing sign...literally missed the ocean..

Might have some details wrong but I'm guessing that's what the reference is to.
