I bet he would have been one of the fastest skaters in the NHL. I watched him play all his junior hockey. He was amazing for the Sault Greyhounds. The year the Soo won the Memorial Cup they had Steve Sulivan, Jaret Reid and Ralph Intranuvo. They were all probably the three fastest skaters in the CHL at the time. I thought out of the three Intranuvo was going to emerge as one to succeed in the NHL. I just don't understand what happened. He was a very fierce competitor, he played just like Theo Fleury and may have even been faster.
Has anyone heard anything about him possibly coming back to play in North America. We could use him on the St. John's Maple Leafs next year. If he still has anything left in his legs I bet he could be a good replacement player for the Leafs. I know this will never happen, just wishfull thinking. He is one of my all time favorite players from junior hockey. He made this one hit in junior hockey on Eric Lindros that I will never forget. I don't even think Lindros even knew where he was after that hit. I would just like to add that he still holds the AHL fastest skater time at 13.683 second set back in 1996.
Agreed, I don't see it either but I would love to see it happen. I would go out and buy season tickets to the Baby Leafs next year if they signed him to a contract. He is so fast and plays the game so hard. I didn't realize to many other people even knew who he is. I always wonder how good he may have been if someone would have given him a chance to play. Edmonton did not want to play him but they didn't want to get rid of him either.
