Great Players with Forgetful Stints

Rate this topic

53 posts in this topic

I was thinking of prominent players who had some brief stints with franchises you forget they ever played for. Many of these came at the end of that player's career, but some others are early in a career or in the middle.

Also, I know Glenn Hall didn't have a bad stint in Detroit, but I alway forget that he played for the Wings at one time.

Mark Messier - Canucks

Igor Larionov - Panthers/Devils

Ron Francis - Leafs

Brett Hull - Coyotes

Eric Lindros - Stars/Leafs

Luc Robitaille - Penguins

Doug Harvey - Red Wings

Sergei Fedorov - Blue Jackets

Markus Naslund - Penguins

Brian Leetch - Bruins/Leafs

Glenn Hall - Red Wings

So what are some others you can think of?

Just some quick ones:

Wayne Gretzky - St. Louis Blues.

Mats Sundin - Quebec Nordiques

Teemu Selanne - Winnipeg Jets (I remember it when I think of his rookie rekord).

Peter Forsberg - Nashville Predators (as brief as they come).

Hatcher on the Wings is the one for me. I thought he would be a great addition for the Wings but with with the injury and all it was pretty much a non-event.

Ray Whitney's stint in Detroit

Marian Hossa's stint in Pittsburgh

Zdeno Chara's time with the Islanders

Goride Howe's stint with the Hartford Whalers

Pavel Bure's time with the Rangers

those are just a few that come to mind...

Igor Larionov playing for the Sharks before he was a Red Wing.

Todd Bertuzzi's first team was the Islanders.

Kariya and Selanne in Colorado was supposed to guarantee them the cup that year, and I'm pretty sure both players had career lows.

John Vanbiesbrouck played for the Philadelphia Flyers, New York Islanders & New Jersey Devils but I can only picture him on the Panthers and Rangers (also, didn't know the guy grew up in Detroit).

Joey Kocur played about 7 games for the Vancouver Canucks before he came to the Wings.

Claude Lemieux was on the China Sharks :P

Some really good ones there guys.

I totally forgot Belfour with the Sharks.

Also, I didn't include Howe's stint in Hartford, because it wasn't all that bad. It's sort of memorable, because of that All Star game in 1980 and because he was in his 50's when he was playing. He played better than any other 51 year old could in the NHL.

Holy hell, I didn't even know at all that Belfour played 13 games with San Jose in 1996-97 - had to look it up on TSN to even see when it happened.

Looking at his stats, I guess he wasn't much help for them.

Trottier was a shell of his former self in Pittsburgh, but they did win some Cups with him centering the 3rd line and I think his experience definitely helped that brief dynasty.

Reminds me of Modano's potential status here in Detroit next year.

Most San Jose fans hate him.
