Hey there everyone! As I write this latest entry, my Habs are the last team yet to lose a game in regulation, and that surely means the Stanley Cup is returning to Montreal, doesn’t it? Doesn’t it? Shea Weber has been on fire, and fans might actually be starting to forget about the great P,K. Subban. That guy certainly had a lot of flair, and he was always a lot of fun to watch. The Seals also once had a defenseman who was flashy, tough, and talented: Carol Vadnais. During the late sixties and early seventies, he was the guy that every team in the league was interested in getting in a trade with the Seals, but the team always resisted, that is until Vadnais himself requested a trade. He ended up winning the Cup with Boston in 1972, so I’m sure he didn’t complain too much about the move. Anyway, getting to the point of this rambling paragraph, check out Vadnais’ 1968-69 O-Pee-Chee card in the “Overexposed” section of the Hockey Hall of Shame.
Also be sure to check out the two new articles posted in the Articles section. The first is about the Barons’ first NHL game back in October, 1976. The second article describes the unusual agreement that merged the Barons with the Minnesota North Stars almost two years later.
Until next time, stay gold!
