I was waiting in line to get into Starlake parking lot for the Tim McGraw Kenny Chesney concert. I remember getting out and running like 5 cars back to tell my friends. I was with my fairly new gf at the time, and my entire day was ruined and I was a miserable person to be around that day. I'm not sure if it was cause it became a reality, because he went to the damn Caps, or we got a bunch of WPIHL players back. http://old.post-gazette.com/penguins/20010711jagrnet1.asp
The trade was hailed by The Washington Post as one of the boldest maneuvers in Washington sporting history.
It takes a lot of balls to trade absolutely nobody for the best player in the game by far at the time.
