Gary Roberts, Jacques Martin, and Ottawa

In 1985-86, at midseason, the Guelph Platers of the OHL, coached by Jacques Martin, acquired Gary Roberts from Ottawa. Led by Roberts, the Platers won the OHL Championship, then the Memorial Cup. I'm from Guelph, and went to some of those games.

This is the Guelph team that year. Check out Roberts' playoff stats.

Could it be time for Martin to return that favour from the city of Ottawa 21 years ago ? Could Gary Roberts help lead Ottawa to the promised land, after leaving the city so many years ago and doing so for Guelph ?

I should mention that Roberts won 2 Memorial Cups in his jr. career (Ottawa 1984, Guelph 1986), so it is logical that he should wind up his career with a 2nd Stanley Cup to go with the Calgary 1989 one.

It would be so sweet if after the game Martin walks up to Roberts puts his arm around him and says your staying here, thanks for everything enjoy your new team.

Quick!!! People going to the game need to make up signs reminding Martin that he owes us.

Oh,and Cup,you need to head for Florida's bus after the game (if you're going) and let Robert's know how much we'd love to have him here. Just don't scare him off.

We need to acquire Luciano Fagioli from that Guelph team.

Lonnie Loach played for the 86 Guelph team, and also played 3 games for the Ottawa Senators in 1992-93.

Kerry Huffman played for 86 Guelph, and played 3 seasons for the Senators in the mid-90s.

I still remember that Platers, and what is often forgotten is that the Hull team (coached by Burnsie) was a dynamic offensive machine but was forced to play 2 games within 24 hours.

They shut down Luc Robitaille and the Olympiques with classic Jacques Martin hockey. It was ahead of its time for Junior Hockey: organized defense Jacques style.

That was when they wore Cooperall long pants in Junior.
