Had to think he was close. I would have passed on him as well. We should never have made that deal that sent him to LA but some things are not meant to be.

Ahh yes, the "Signature Trade" of the Neil (What Oiler fetish?) Smith era..,Ferraro,Norstrom, LaPerrier and Nathan Lafayette to the Kings for a washed up Jari Kurri ,Marty McChucklehead and Shane Churla.

Definitely one of the most regrettable deals ever. Ferraro was having a great season before we dealt him.

I liked Matty..hopefully everything works out for him in his post-NHL life.

Yeah that deal was the final nail in the coffin.

I still maintain that this team sealed it's long term fate with the Amonte and Gartner trades and overpaid for Tikanen, but this was the deal that pretty much finished that off.

I still remember the play where Norstrom fell hard in our own crease and seperated his shoulder. I could be wrong but I think that was the last game he played for us. What a shame and what a terrible trade. Would have been nice to see what a Defense with Leetch, Zubov and Norstrom could have done for us.

I remember watching Norstrom and Aaron Miller playing on the top d pairing for the kings in the playoffs one year and thinking to myself, man I wish we had two guys like that. Instead we thought it was a good idea to trade Miller for Joe Cirella. Good times.

Props to Linden on a hell of a career. He's as classy as you're going to find a professional athlete. All you need to know about him is what Iginla and the Flames did for him in his final regular season game.

Classy guy.

Always was amazed out how quickly his offense disappeared though.

Very similary career arch to Muller. Pretty much done as a leading scorer by the time they were 28 (when they should have been entering their prime), hung on for another decade as a valuable bottom six checker.

Brind'Amour will not retire. He is a freak of nature, just like Chelios is.

I am also reading that former Ranger Tomas Kloucek will play in Kazakhstan.
Apparently Kazakhstan has huge ambitions in hockey. They certainly have the money.

They already have one of the premier teams in cycling. hockey, soccer could be next

This was one of those What. The. *******. moments, and the first time in my adult life that I truly questioned my devotion to the Rangers.

Truly the Worst. Trade. Ever. (honorable mention goes to the Zubie deal).

Hard to fault the Amonte/Gartner deals for what they helped achieve, Edge, but I get where you're going.

Isn't Kazakhstan one of the countries that will have a KHL team?

I thought Norstrom was a so-so Dman at the time so I didnt think it could hurt. Yeah, I was dead wrong. That trade, was so so bad, our team was rolling that season, it was such bad timing. I like Neil Smith but he always tried to stay one foot ahead of everyone and at times it burned him.

Good to see Matty have a great career though, he was solid for many years.

Linden was a beast when he came on the scene. He was the reason Vancouver lasted 7 games against the Rangers in 94, IMO. What a warrior he was for that team. Class guy too.
