PITTS - I'm not sure I get you. EJ never played for the Penguins. In the NHL, he tended for Boston, St Louis, Toronto and Chicago.

Net - the 'angle' still works because EJ was an OLD man when he retired... dude was 42 years old. I don't know who was worse, EJ or "Hulk Hogan" or Ric Flair. woooooooo

Let me clarify that even more for you: EJ was a player for the Pens, took management position with them after he retired from playing, then went to Hartford to be the GM where he made that famous trade with the Pens...then came back to work for the Pens!!!


Yeah I knew about all that except I'd totally spaced out on the part about him being GM of the Whalers when he made "The Trade".

Interestingly enough, in my mind, this serously taints CP's legagcy. I'd always given him full credit for that trade, another way of putting it is "The Trade" was always at the top of the list in the "Good things CP has done" column. Well, not any more. It's now in a seperate column with an asterisk. That swings the balance for me. There's now more items (so to speak) in the "Bad things CP has done" column.

I think it's time for a change.

Good for CP that I don't make the decision huh :-)
