What a load of crap. When they write about the Kordic for Courtnall trade, they say that John Broophy was the inspiration for the Ogie Ogilthorpe character. That can't be further from the truth. The inspiration for the character was Bil Goldthorpe from Thunder Bay via Hornepayne Ontario. In fact Goldy was supposed to be in the movie but was cut out due to being a legit bad ass that the hollywood people didn't want to deal with afterwards. He didn't receive any credit for it.
In Montreal, the trade that sent Kirk Muller to the Islanders for Turgeon was very sad. Muller was as proud to be the team's captain as anyone could have asked from him, so much so that he had started talking french classes to learn the language.
In the dressing room area, back in the old Forum, it was an old tradition that the team's captain had his picture up on the wall. When Muller saw his taken down, he cried because he was so hurt.
This trade was really a heartbreaker, even more so since the day prior, GM Serge Savard guaranteed Muller than he wasn't going to be traded.
