A good friend was lucky enough to win the jersey of Jan Nemecek #2.

I always think of this player, this move, and his name. It just stuck with me for ever. And I could never look him up on-line because I was hopeless at trying to spell his name even remotely close enough for google to fix for me. so thank you to you sir.

And here is the goal:

Dan Currie. Was he the one who had the Derian Hatcher-esque blond locks? I have a Buffalo memory stuck somewhere.

I remember still expecting way too much after the finals run and the humiliation of 93/94 where the new California teams- the expansion team Mighty Ducks and the Sharks- finishes ahead of the Kings was, with a lack of better words, painful.

Looking through the 94/95 roster. 5 goalies and just a boat load of players in and out the roster in a shortened 48-game lockout season.

That would be him.


Here he is now,


He's now a Junior A coach in Ontario, and this article talks about his stint with the Kings as well.

Whenever I drive by Magic Mountain, the McBean exit, I am reminded of the Kings' sure-fire All Star defenseman, Wayne McBean. Also, Craig Redmond comes to mind for some reason.

A quick Google of him brings up this:



Is there a current or former NHL'er she hasn't banged?

There was also Rick Knickle, the all-time career minor league games leader for goalies (at the time anyway). Daniel Barthieum (sp?) kicked around until the Kings drafted Robb Stauber.

I seem to recall a few other ex-Habs goalies playing in LA during the Gretzky era or shortly there after. Who am I forgetting?
I was sure Rick Knickle was the answer in net. I didn't know what the question was apparently. The other obscure player I had high hopes for was Sandy Moger. Sometimes I see a guy on the Kings who sucks and think "man, this guy is going to be good". I think it comes with being a Die Hard.

When I think of Kings suckage, I come up with an obscure player in Kings history. Paul Pageau. In 80-81 (I think that was the year) he played in one game giving up 8 goals to the Islanders. His real claim to "fame" is that during the Kings playoff brawl with the Rangers he was a healthy scratch and from the bench area grabbed Ed Hospodar who was in a fight with of all people Marcel Dionne (who had come to the aid of Mario Lessard). What Pageau didn't know was that another healthy scratch for the Rangers, Nick Fotiu, was right behind him when he did that and proceeded to beat the crap out of him. I think it was one of Jerry Buss' bodyguards that saved him.

Paul Pageau... my front runner for obscure suckage.

Back to Paul Pageau for a moment I found the video... not great quality but if you go to the 5 minute mark you'll see Marce square off with Hospodar let it roll and you'll see Nick Fotiu have Pageau for lunch.

At least Wayne has an excuse for not living up to his potential. I wouldn't be focused on hockey if she was laying in bed with me either. Top priority would be to find a way to be a healthy scratch so I could get out of the dumpy Forum and back to her ASAP.

While there is no doubt that Kelly was all heart, he really was a punching bag for anyone, including non-fighters.
