Heh Prairie Habber, a little story about Skrudland and Odelein.
On a bright and hot sunny June day in Saskatoon, I witnessed watching my beloved habs at Harold Latrace arena with 250 Western Canadian Montreal Canadien Fan Club members. Included in that crowd was Norm Skrudland (father of Brian). That was a great night except for the sadness in the room for Norm who's son favorite team trading him a few months prior to Calgary for that &^$% loser Gary Leeman. What a stupid and unpopular move that was. Any hoo, Norm was somehappy for the win, but I know he wished his son was celebrating that night as well. Lyle Odelein was on the phone with our club pres. Jim in the champions locker room afterwards and had to get off to get interviewed by Dick Irwin. He told Dick that he was just talking to us and we cheered being mentioned in that special moment. The drinks flowed and we went on to the rink ice and carried our own cup around like our beloved habs, what a night, I will never forget it.
