The last time Francis was dealt at trade deadline...

...he won the Stanley Cup with Pittsburgh in 1991.


1991: Pittsburgh Penguins acquire C Ron Francis, D Ulf Samuelsson, and D Grant Jennings from Hartford for C John Cullen, D Zarley Zalapski, and LW Jeff Parker -- The Penguins, led by Mario Lemieux, had no trouble scoring; it was keeping the other team off the scoreboard that was holding them back.

Francis, like Goring a decade before him, was solid in his own end and more than enough of an offensive threat to keep opponents from ganging up on Lemieux, while Samuelsson provided muscle on the blue line that the offensive-minded Pens had never had.

It all looks good. This guy is very quiet and humble and everyone loves him. This guy will fill in so well. Mats gotta love this aquisition as well as it takes a lot of pressure off his back with the leadership in Nieuwy, Francis and obviously Roberts.
