You're actually regretting trading Zubrus when we also got rid of Linden and acquired a 1st which turned into Perezhoguin?
Zednik, Bulis, Perezhoguin
whoa man Savard KILLED with that one.
Maybe I worded what I wrote badly.. I don't regreat that trade for a second! We got three great players back (I forgot Perezhogin was part of that deal) and dumped Trevor Linden. I should have said I liked Dainus Zubrus as a player and think we could use him on the team.
I hope Zednik, Bulis and Perezhogin are with the team for many years to come!
Well on TSN, they say it was Holmqvist (well the pick that had been traded to TB). They might be wrong.
I was wrong finally. The pick was the 2nd rounder that was used for Holmqvist, Washington traded it for a second round pick in 2002, which was later included in the trade where Trevor Linden was headed to Vancouver for a first round pick (Boyd Gordon) & a 3rd round pick in 2003.
Unfortunately, Hamel is better remembered for getting sucker punched during the 1984 playoffs versus Quebec. For the benefit of our younger posters, that was the game that had two bench clearing brawls.
Anybody got a video of that? I like to live in the past these days...
