When you have the craptastic Cup history we do, losing a game 7 in double OT seems worth mentioning. And scoring-wise at least, O'Connor's held his own playing his last four seasons here against prime Raleigh and Laprade, playing more games and scoring more points than the latter two:
Not earth shattering, but also not often that we can look at three guys we're comparing when they were all playing at the same time.
Cake or Death, you are dropping the proverbial other shoe!
No sooner did Crease remind there is a more balanced ranking for Espo, and you have generated great stuff -- thanks also --- on O'Connor.
Much to consider....
