Obligatory venomous mention of Jason F***ing Williams.
It's pronounced "Zim" not "Exim". Aw heck with it, just call me Scott.

I thought he was talking about the time Lidstrom was injured and lilja and lebda were the first pairing.


That is what I was referring to.

And yet he had not one, but two stints with us.

Uwe Krupp?  Or maybe Max Kuznetsov?  At least he could translate English to Russian for Pasha in  his rookie season, so he did serve a purpose.

I know.... I'm sure if my pets spoke English they'd think my term was his actual name. My wife was amused by it. She's not a big hockey fan, but she thought he was absolutely terrible.

all time misfit....Ken Holland! With all those lovely quotes he uses every draft, July 1st, throughout the season and trade deadline! He builds you up just to knock you down, you play the fool while he plays the clown! In the end, he kicked the tires and made some offers, but he likes our team!

Money on the board: $30.00 plus immunity.

When you first mentioned misfit, my first reaction was Howie Young. But, according to the definition that is evolving in this discussion, he wouldn't qualify.


Watch out!!!! - it's the Sheik ---- and he's got an object!!!!

I like Robert Lang.  He was kind of a misfit here.  He did well before he got here, but just didn't fit here.

At least he gave the Hobbit a hold to grow up in.


Money on the board:  Current total: $6

$1 for a goal by any current Wing after whom I have named a hamster.  An additional $5 for a series-clinching goal scored by any current Wing after whom I have named a hamster. $5 if the other team fails to score against a current Wing goalie after whom I have named a hamster.

Hamsters I have had:  (current Wings highlighted)

I was thinking someone like McCarty. I guess when I hear misfit I think of that kind of person. I don't think this was a thread about who the worst wings player or worst trade was, I think this was about who our favourite little trouble maker was

When you first mentioned misfit, my first reaction was Howie Young. But, according to the definition that is evolving in this discussion, he wouldn't qualify.

 

Before Probert, before McCarty, before just about anybody else, there was Howard John Edward Young.  

 

NHL president Clarence Campbell called Howie Young “"the worst detriment to the NHL to ever lace up a pair of skates." Frank Sinatra simply called him “Howie baby.”

"Mess up tomorrow, don't mess up now".
