Tim Cheveldae - Chevy

If you think goaltenders today have it hard, look up that dudes career :)

One of the Wings most famous goalies. Not....because they did good those years...either.

Was Cheveldae the guy Demers couldn't start for home games anymore because the booing was too bad? Or was he the guy who did get the home starts because they were booing the other guy?

Speaking of doghouses of yore, there's also Big Keith Primeau, always said with irony because he played like someone who was 5'6".

You should know, Cheveldae, started more games in a season, than any other wings Goaltender has ever started. He was, effectively, despite a horribly losing season, Detroits most iron goalie, in history. He sucked, sure. But he backstopped the worst team in Wings history, day in, day out.

But I notice, you don't know what you're talking about, so perhaps you should look it up?

Per the Freep today: Darren Helm is also known as "Danger"

I prefer not to think too much about goaltending of the 80s and 90s because it's such an unhappy place, and the level of suck tends to make me think that Bob Essena was around far longer than he was.

I've heard Holmstrom referred to as Tommy by Mule before. Not super original but another to add.
