Lol, but Brookbank did.

How about Tyler Eckford? Another future Scott Stevens or Rafalski D man(Which one was he compared to?0
We traded McIntyre to Minnesota for.... some defenseman who promptly left for Europe. I can't remember his name.

Edit: Maxim Noreau!

One of the amusing Tikkanen stories came from his time in Edmonton. The press was interviewing him and Tikkanen was giving some incomprehensible responses. They all assumed he was speaking in Finnish. So they asked Jari Kurri to translate. Kurri was like "I have no idea what he's saying."

I went to a Devils/Kings game in LA on January 25, 2003: http://www.hockey-reference.com/boxs...301250LAK.html

During that game, the scoreboard was doing the customary Happy Birthday/Anniversary/etc messages. Then one pops up "HAPPY BIRTHDAY ESA TIKKANEN."

The entire crowd was kinda puzzled. Makes sense to arrange that for an 8 year old's birthday. Perhaps makes some sense for a grown adult. But it didn't really make sense for an NHL vet. We all figured it was some gag.

After the game, we spot a really drunk Tikkanen is stumbling around.

Tikkanen also spawned the now-famous inside joke between Pat Burns and Bob McKenzie, because he couldn't pronounce the names of Colin Campbell (Gullen Gumble) and John Vanbiesbrouck (Joe Mansbreek) properly.
