I bet a dinner with Recchi, Tocchet, and Mario would be fun.

I don't think there is any issue whatsoever. Both Recchi and Tocchet have been all over the league. They know the business.

Lemieux, Recchi, Tocchet and Stevens...now those were some big time players! What memories!


Or how about Guerin being acquired to fill the spot on Sid's wing that Recchi could no longer... And then Recchi coming in and taking Guerin's old job after Bill gets a promotion?

You could probably do 6 degrees of Kevin Bacon with nearly every player in the NHL. At least those with longevity.

Did you know Jordan Staal had two brothers who're also playing in the NHL?

Now LeClair...there's your problem. Takes out Malkin in his first game here, then goes on to destroy the locker room. Philly blood all the way through! :)


:lol: :lol: :lol: Completely forgot about this. Didn't it happen in a pre-season game of all times? Some meaningless game?

Yeah, I'm inclined to believe Leclaire was more of the problem in that 05/06 season. Him and Lyle freking Odeline. Ryan Malone attributed a big part of his game to Leclaire...look at how that panned out :pop:

I thought that Recchi and Crosby didn't like one another?

That's what I heard (back in the day). I think they smoothed things over in 06/07.
