Matt finished his freshman year already 22... he needed to go now to have the best shot of making the big bucks. Good decision on his part.
Mike Hurlbut. Despite never really sticking in the NHL. I use to see him when he played on the Rangers farm team in Binghamton. Average size--very smooth skater and smooth with the puck. Not overly physical but not exactly a cream puff either. He must have played 20 or so games for us one year. Not sure why he never stuck somewhere. He seemed a good player. Of the current Rangers the closest comparison would be Stralman. NHL was a bit tougher back then. A forward got around your goalie and it was fair game with the slashes, crosschecks and rabbit punches to the back of the head.
