March 5th, 1991:
to NYR: Joe Kocur, Per Djoos
to DET: Kevin Miller, Jim Cummins, Dennis Vial
damn we sure missed that Djoos guy!
edit: Although, we then traded Miller for Ciccarelli the following year, so all was good.
Didn't Djoos score 4-5 goals IN ONE GAME against the North Stars once?
I know his best seasons were with us, but I was sad to see Ysebaert go. IIRC, we got Ward for him, though, so given his later production this actually turned out ok.
Chiasson for Vernon was a bummer at the time, but we all know how that one turned out.
On the subject of the Primeau trade, I was upset to see Coffey go. I was a huge fan of his -- watching him and Nick hold the line on the PP was a thing of beauty. Shanahan worked out pretty well for us, though
I loved it when Primeau got traded. LOVED it. I guess I never got over the fact that we didn't take Jagr because of Petr Klima's troubles. When I think of Primeau on the ice, he's butt is wet from falling down so often trying to unsuccessfully split the defense. Off the ice, I can't forget the grown man COLLECTED MICKEY MOUSE FIGURINES.
Hated seeing Chiasson go too. I still fondly can hear, "Chaisson with a drive!" coming over my radio.
