Just think, during the 1977 draft, GM Bill Torrey was going to select a checker instead of Bossy, but coach Arbour preferred the scorer (Bossy), because he could teach him to check. Gotta love Al.
That whole NY Islanders team was dynamite. I remember the 1st round of the 1981 playoffs against my Leafs. The Isles swept the series in 3 games. The scores were something like 10-1, 9-0 and 7-1. And people think the Leafs are bad now.]]>
