Not quite an "oh the horror" cringe like most other things, but every Sharks fan, and indeed most hockey fans, have to cringe at the gruesome sight of Marco Sturm sliding feet first into the boards and breaking his ankle against Colorado last season.

And for Canucks fans: "The Vancouver Cancuks are proud to select Daniel and Henrik Sedin."

I dont know, look at the top ten from that draft and tell me the Canucks would have done better. I mean, would Pavel Brendl been so much better? Or Tim Connolly? Or Brian Finley? Sure there were guys like Havlat and Jackman taken later in the first round, but no one would have taken those guys at #2 and 3 back then without hindsight.

It was more what the Canucks gave up to be able to draft the Sedins- Burkie would have done better to have peddled the pick rather than seeking another in a very poor draft.

Next to Boston, you should add "Too Many Men."


P.S. That miss by Tikkanen in the '98 Finals is the worst I can remember, even worse than Glen Wesley's backhand miss in the '90 Finals(the "Petr Klima Game").

What makes me shudder:

"Our scouting staff, our coaching staff, our whole organization feels that Jeff Hackett will give us the solid and steady goaltending that we will need to take a run at the Stanley Cup,” said Clarke in making the announcement. “He is also the type of goaltender that will allow us to give Robert Esche enough work to develop into a top goaltender.”



Flyers

Just anything Clarke says makes me shudder...him or JR. Sometimes, these 2 got zip it. I love 'em, but learn to keep your yap shut!

Jeff Hackett was actually pretty damn good with the Habs.

Can't fault the Flyers for Hackett getting injurred. They wanted to eventually go with Esche anyway, Hackett was supposed to split time with him from day 1.

For Montreal: Mario Tremblay.

Oh my! A hockey player crosschecked another hockey player????? I've never seen anything like that before. He should've been suspended for the rest of the playoffs and the next season.

It would not be the first time as Messier has served suspensions for taking his stick to other Canucks players.

He was suspended for six games for hitting Thomas Gradin over the helmet with his stick during Edmonton's Jan. 18, 1984, game vs. Vancouver. Gradin suffered a mild concussion. Messier was immediately suspended and sat out three games while awaiting the official NHL verdict, which tacked on an additional three games.

He was suspended six games by NHL for hitting Rich Sutter in mouth with a high stick during Edmonton's Oct. 23, 1988, game at Vancouver. Although Messier was not called for a penalty on the play, Sutter suffered four broken teeth, and the Canucks appealed to the NHL with videotaped replays to ensure that Messier would be suspended. A hearing was held on Oct. 27, 1988, and Messier was suspended on Nov. 1, 1988.

Someone asked who missed the open net for Was in 98'. Hint: He played with a old Jofa helmut(model gretzky). He had number 10 on his back and is famous for his elegent way to express himself(in his own langue tik-talk).

Rangers: Only one player in this cathegory. He is so far ahead of anyone else that its a insult to him to name Glen Sather or any other minorleague "bad guy".
