Housley was a putz. When you pick up nicknames like the Flamingo for your aversion to blocking shots (when one of the best at it, Mike Ramsey was saving your ass defensively every night), something is wrong. When you are called Phil the Thrill because of the chances you create for the other team, something is wrong. Housley was waived after scoring 40 points in a season in a non-offensive era in the NHL. That should tell you how bad his defense was.
