I don't exactly remember why they traded Dino away. His defensive game?

EDIT: Oh, and I already posted this in the Franzen thread but I might as well post it here too:

Im pretty sure it was conflict with Bowman. Same goes for Paul Coffey. (also, we wanted to get tougher so we traded him for Shanny.)

My housemate (who is a die hard Bruins fan) saw that deflection and said just four words:

"That's just not fair."

While smiling.

Right. Plus after the playoff failures in 93, 94, 95, and 96 it was time to change the core around Yzerman and Fedorov. Add to that, McCarty and Lapointe were ready to take a bigger role on the team, Ciccarelli was in the way.

Yes, that quote is true. It's been cited many times.
I think it might even be in that "Blood Feud" book, but I'm not sure.


gotcha. like i said, relatively new to the game. wasn't watching in the late ninety's (i was ten, and i didn't grow up in a hockey family). i'm not sure if you said "it's been cited many times" to be ******-y or just to give the quote credibility. i'll assume the latter. :)

Can't pass? The guy makes great passes every single game, just watch in tonight's game; he just makes it look easy... Also, his hockey smartness is one of the best on the team. He is top three in breakout passing on the team IMO, which is one of the most important skills you can have as a winger.


i guess the point i was making was that he's not known for any other skills, including passing. on the team, i'd think that dats, z, flip, mule, lids, raffi, kronner, helm, and maybe even willy will be better at, from time to time, threading the needle and making a great pass, or dishing behind the back fora great set-up, or something like that. homer obviously knows the ice really well -- like someone else mentioned, it seems like he reacts to the play vis-a-vis positioning even better than the goalie most of the time. i just don't think he has the stick skills or agility to make that slick pass when needed.

obviously, slick passing doesn't win championships: griding it out does. and that's homer. i wasn't trying to dig him. i'm just saying, you don't see homer making sweet passes the way that you see dats and z and our best d-men do it -- but, like i said, that's not the most important thing, and that's not his role on the team!

Holmstrom sometimes gets under-appreciated around here, but he is really having a great year - almost surprised to see him make plays away from the crease!

That tip tonight was just a thing of beauty, and a great example of why he is still the best man in the NHL in front of the net.
Here's to Holmstrom's 5th 20 goal season! :clap:


True Red Wings fans know Homer's true talent, I hope all the Homer bashers are eating a hot plate of crow.

Hardly anyone does it better than Homer.
