what was the name of that guy?

In the early 70s (1970? 1971?) the Rangers brought up a young fellow with spectacular speed and skating ability who looked like a world-beater in warmup. Unfortunately he never amounted to anything and was soon gone. I have been going crazy trying to remember his name.

Can anyone help?

Maybe Gene Carr? He was very fast.

Gene Carr, of whom Bill "The Big Whistle" Chadwick once said, "He couldn't put the puck in the ocean if he were standing at the end of the pier."

OT: Been meaning to pose this trivia question to...er...older NYR fans. That is, anyone who has any recollection of the 70s. :p One of my earliest (bizarre) hockey memories is fans at MSG having a rooting section, a fan club, for a certain member of the California Golden Seals. This player was even more obscure than his team, which made the "___ ___ Fan Club" all the more humorous, in the dry manner in which it was intended. Marv and Sal used to comment on it, when the Seals came to town (and were summarily hammered by NYR). Ended as quickly as the player was out of the league, which was quickly.

Answer this one correctly, and you are instantly nominated for the NYR fan Hall of Fame. I cannot imagine anyone getting this, it is sooo obscure.

No, good thought though.

I'm trying to figure out how in the world to validate the answer, once/if someone gets it.

anyway, since this is a bit before my time, im just gonna take a guess:

Bob Stewart. (simply because he was the PIM leader on the team)

Not Stewart, but yes, the player in question is on that list. Someone with connections to NYR is going to have to send off an email to Marv, Sal or someone in the PR department (or a writer?) for validation. Person would need to have knowledge of NYR hockey, pre-1975.

We have a winner!

The Morris Mott Fan Club!

Was that a guess or a distant memory?

My Dad & Uncle had joked about Mott for some reason or another when I was first becoming a hockey fan(1979), so I took a guess

Yes, it was Gene Carr. Thanks.

Now that I know, it seems anticlimactic.

Oh, well, back to my home site - the Maple Leafs, who have just been tied by the Rangers 5-5 in an exciting if sloppy game.
