and you were dead right. bates f-ing battaglia sucked too, but it was crap for crap, I always thought. and then crap for a good player, Kono.

I am still glad that Kono had his condition diagnosed and not have it end up the way Fischer, or even more recently and tragically Cherepanov ended up. Sometimes you realize that hockey is not as important as life.

I still miss Kono though, fantastic player, amazing third liner and pretty good second liner as well.
