I am going to write a bio on Guy Carbonneau playing career
I need your help!!!
I need some info on his playing style. I know he was a junior offensive player and become a nhl defensive specialist. Could he skate fast did he have a good shot?
If you can do a mini scouting report for me that would be awsome What can you tell me about his career while in dallas?
From what I remember of Carbo is Dallas was that he was an amazing penalty killer for us. Whenever he was on the ice killing a penalty, the other team rarely scored on us. I remember in one playoff game against the Oilers back in Reunion arena(I think it was 99')the Oilers had a two man advantage and the whole time, Carbo was on the ice killing the penalty off. Well the whole time the fans are standing and going nuts and Carbo is blocking shots all over the place. They killed the penalty off and the fans were chanting "GUY GUY GUY!!" for awhile after that.
I remember him for that one series of penalty kills as I have never heard the Dallas fans so loud at a game in a long time.
Carbo is best remembered for his brains. No one killed penalties better or ate up clock more by keeping the puck in safe areas when the opposing offense was on the ice. He was an excellent faceoff man and did all the "little things" really well.
Guy...i remember reading an article in the newspaper down here about him throwing Lords Stanley Cup off of a balcony and hitting the side of a pool...ended up putting a good ding in the cup that had to be fixed ....he was drunk and at a celebration party after the 99 cup win.
He was my favorite player when he was with Montreal, and he is one reason I was cheering for Dallas when he played there.
The one stat I remember and that still amazes me is that during the cup run with Dallas, he had more saves then the goalie. He had something like 35 blocked shots and the goalie made something like 25 saves during the game(not sure of the exact number, but I know he had at least more).
Also, a funny thing to add was that his son in law, or at least his daughter's boyfriend played on his team(not sure if they were married when he was still playing). That is one reason he retired. He figured it showed his true age.
He is a Bob Gainey type of player. Smart and calm and works both side of the ice.
