There was very little sentiment towards Green that he didn't get what he deserved.
Terrible to say, but the guy, Green had no seconds thoughts about hatching up someone. I remember the event well.

I also remeber Terry Sawchuk's last shutout. He was the backup to Eddie Giacomin back in 69-70 and if I remember right it was number 100. Next year he dies in an altercation with room mate Ron Stewart. Very strange set of circumstances.
Been a Ranger fan almost 30 years and just now hearing about how sawchuk died. Crazy...

Want to hear something interesting?

"Stewart was involved in a tragic incident in New York that claimed the life of famed goaltender Terry Sawchuk, his housemate at the time. Alcohol was involved and none of the witnesses could accurately recall what triggered the dispute, but many speculate that Sawchuk confronted Stewart about his pottery obsession after Stewart had removed the only refrigerator in their house in order to make room for a new kiln.

After three years with the Rangers, Stewart was traded to Vancouver, only to be dealt back to New York for their run for the Cup in 1972. Boston easily defeated the Rangers in the Cup final, but Stewart was able to sell a number of clay pots to Phil Esposito before heading home to New York. After being dealt one last time, to the Islanders in the 1972-73 season, he retired from the game as a player."

Now that's bizarre if you ask me. A dispute over a new kiln?

A new kiln is ok, but just remember to get three dates for my friends

It is virtually impossible to go a day without a quote from one of those three films somewhere on this site.

I seem to recall coming on after Sather made the Lindors trade with something like "War's over, man. Sather dropped the big one". Yeah, we found some pretty good uses for quotes from those.
