Oh, I so despise Jamie Macoun to this day.

I'd qualify as an old guy.

Explain it to this not-so-old guy, then? Why the gratuitous hate?

Macoun knocked Hawerchuk out of the 1985 playoffs with a brutal crosscheck - Jets ended up going on to win that series against Calgary, but lost in the next round fairly easily to Edmonton. Not having Hawerchuk was a HUGE blow, obviously. They finished 4th overall, and 2nd in the Smythe, but didn't have much to offer Edmonton in the second round.

Check out the video here...no penalty even called on the play- shameful. Ducky was absolutely lighting it up.




Another useless factoid - I was in the Arena for every one of those home game clips they show in this video...it was awesome (except for the losses!)

So the league has ruled teams are granted one compliance buyout this week, meaning both Gomez and Redden can and will be bought out. This is good, it would have sucked for those guys to have to wait until next year to play. I am glad the league did this.

I think Gomez ends up back in familiar territory with NJ, and Redden back in Ottawa. I'd like to see both succeed and do well.

Giroux named captain of the Flyers and Zetterberg for the Wings. Both well-deserved.

Zetterberg only the 3rd captain for the Wings since 1986. :O

That was before I lived in Winnipeg and was not a fan yet but I despised the Flames and was really pi55ed at that play. seemed like 1.0 were so snake bit based on the playoff format back then.

I remember seeing the pic of Mason's pads last season and I loved them. It appears he's sticking with the same concept with the Preds this year.

^Those pads are really nice!

Also, Salvador named captain of the Devils today. Cool to have another Manitoban captain.
