Remember when Steve Duchene and Al MacInnis tore it up on the blue line? Also, Joe Micheletti was color commentating? I didn't realize how good of a commentator he was until he was gone..
Edit: Also anyone remember when our "captain" Dallas Drake signed his deal with Detroit? I was glad to see him go, but c'mon. That's like marrying your ex-wife's sister.
That seems to happen all the time for some reason (e.g. Komisarek to Toronto, Damon to the Yankees, etc) and yea its confusing. My best guess is that when you play a team so much you know a lot more about them and even if they are rivals there's a respect there.
Plus he wanted to win a cup.
