I was four years old at the time, and working on my second doctoral thesis in physics. I was just on the verge of finally completing the Theory of Everything, and then I saw this trade. It shook me so much that I forgot everything I was working on and became a normal four-year-old.
You had me going until the part about becoming normal.
25 years. Dang. Back in the days when Edmonton was the dynasty and the Wings.... weren't.
Money on the board! Current total: $7
$1 for each goal scored by a current Wing after whom I've named a hamster. +$5 if one scores a hat trick.
+$1 if a GWG. +$5 if it is a GWG in a series-winning game.+$50 if it is the GWG that wins us the Cup.
$5 for each time a goalie after whom I've named a hamster prevents all opposing shots from going in the net.
The hamsters names are as follows (current Wings in red)
Henrik Pavel Tomas Nicklas Dominik
Niklas Matthieu Daniel Robert
Johan Andreas Valtteri Jonathan
Andrew (Drew) Patrick Ian Todd
Jordin Damien Gustav James
