I think the latter eva, theres just no way Adams shouldve traded Terry like that, screwed with his head, really bad spin, and Adams did not care one frig. Mr.Goalie was not an ideal to play to as a kid contemporaneously. He was soft in the head as far as I was concerned. A battler ya, but not a Money Player. Idiotic inverted 'V' only good on screens, dekes, and, foolishly, wore goals around his neck. Couldnt shake it off... and whats with the upchucking? If you have to play a "game" bulimic your an idiot. WTF is that?
Adams did the same thing to Sawchuk with Hall as he did to Lumley with Sawchuk. The only difference is that he turned around and made Hall a throw-in when he banished Lindsay. Stupid move.
