Bertuzzi, and a 1st round draft pick in 2005 are quite attractive when you consider what you're getting instead of 8 mill for one player who has a much shorter shelf life. Oh, did I just say that? Bwahaha!

I was still using it as a figure of speech within the context of what I was saying. To say the "'arch' that bestows your hopes and dreams" doesn't have quite the same ring to it. But yes, you got me on that I didn't call it the correct name way back then. Since then, however, I did know it was called The Arch. Don't ask me how, as I don't remember where I picked up the info. Maybe it was from reading your little blurb on it.

Before I leave, check this trash talking out between the Islanders and Oilers in 1982:

Here are some interesting comments from the Islanders/Oilers in 1982:


Clark Gillies, Islander forward:

Before meeting the heavily favored Edmonton Oilers for the Stanley Cup:
"We
want to beat them more than anything. You know why? Because they think
they're the greatest thing since sliced bread."

After helping to silence the critics and the Oilers by earning his
fourth
straight Stanley Cup ring: "What we've done in four years might never
be
done again."


Denis Potvin, Islander defenseman and captain:

"We're the best that ever skated, and if anyone doesn't believe it
they're
just kidding themselves."


Glen Sather, Oiler coach and general manager:

During the finals: "The slashing and chippy play isn't what's
distracting
us. Smith is. I'll say this: He's one whale of a goaltender."

After walking past the Islander dressing room following the Oilers'
ouster
from the Stanley Cup finals: "They all had ice packs on. None of our
guys
were beat up like that. We just didn't know how hard we had to go to
win. To
be a Stanley Cup champion."

"I guess, or at least hope, that we're going to be around for a while.
But I
hope that's the last we see of the Islanders."


Bill Smith, Islander goalie:

Upon hearing that Oiler Glenn Anderson, who ignited a furor by going
down
after being whacked with Smitty's goal stick, was going to play the
next
playoff game: "I thought his funeral was today."

On his Oscar-worthy performance late in game four of the finals, when
he
went down like a ton of bricks after being grazed by an opposing
player:
"When I hit Gretzky he rolled around and cried like he was dying, so
that's
what I did. I threw myself and squirmed. I want to tell people in
Canada and
all over the world that two people can play that game."

On winning the Conn Smythe Trophy as playoff MVP: "I couldn't show this
(the
MVP trophy) around some parts of Canada. I'd be shot."


Bob Bourne, Islander forward:

On the Edmonton Oilers: "They think they're so hot. They're damn cocky.
The
thing that really bugs me is, they don't respect us. They're not the
Stanley
Cup champions. We are."

"We're scared of losing. That's why we win. We know what it's like to
lose
and we hate it. We enjoy being champions too much."

"No matter what Mr. Arbour and Mr. Torrey say, this team can turn it on
and
off when we want to."

Trash-talk from 1982, huh!?

Why?

Shoot - there is a large contingency from this board that was born in 1982.

as for me - I think I had a NHL connect the dots book that, when connected, the dots would mak out the logos of such teams like the Cleveland Barons (folded up into the North Stars and then re-opened into the San Jose Sharks), ATLANTA Flames, Colorado Rockies (now NJ Devils), Quebec Nordiques and Winnipeg Jets (no history lesson needed).

I iwsh I still had it - along with a few hockey cards that held NO value to me - or anyone else - even 20+ years later. I liked the Rangers then (my dad worked for the company that owned them in NYC).

Anyway....1982 tash talking.

Well, I wasn't around in 82, but I do know this... if ESPN's PTI show needs a new set of round-table discussion guests... I've got my nominations right here

Now what kind of Mighty Duck sequel would that be eh?

Have you seen those movies... you know how they end.

PS- I like how in the international tournament one (I don't know, D2)... they conveniently didn't play Canada... only a newspaper article flashed on the screen said that they beat the Canucks... and Iceland in the final... what's up with that?

They were scared. Canada is the greatest hockey power on Earth, and they knew they would lose credibility if they beat us on screen.
