    I imagine Frank Nighbor would look terrific with Fisher, too.

    Frank McGee would probably help with secondary scoring. And we mustn't forget Percy LeSueur and Clint Benedict...

    I'll be looking for that jersey at the Sens store. :cyclops:

    In all seriousness, as you've pointed out a number of times, Ottawa has a pretty rich hockey heritage. It's a shame more effort hasn't been put into connecting the current franchise with that.

    Frank McGee scored 14 goals in one game. I wouldnt call that secondary scoring.

    Hell, that beats 3/4 of our roster this season.

    Frank McGee...yes indeed.

    By the way, if anyone is interested, there is a a good book on the early years of the NHL, from its inception, to the 1940s when it became a six team league (being contracted from ten) and finally gained exclusive rights to the Stanley Cup.

    Deceptions and Doublecross: How the NHL Conquered Hockey
    by Morey Holzman and Joseph Nieforth (Dundurn Press), available from Amazon Canada.

    http://www.amazon.ca/Deceptions-Doublecross-How-Conquered-Hockey/dp/1550024132/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1234764489&sr=8-1

    Hockey lovers will be fascinated by the truth about how the National Hockey League was founded and how, through less than savory means, it captured permanent possession of the Stanley Cup.

    Deceptions and Doublecross begins with the 1917 conspiracy among a Montreal contingent of the National Hockey Association to oust Toronto owner Edward James Livingstone from the league. The result was the transformation of the NHA into the NHL, with Frank Calder as president, leaving Livingstone out in the cold.
    Under Calders iron-fisted direction, the NHL became the only major hockey league in North America, and gained exclusive claim to the Stanley Cup.

    Morey Holzman, a member of the Hockey Research Association, has contributed to Total Hockey: Second Edition, The Official WHA Encyclopedia, and The Canada Cup. He is respected for his pioneering efforts with his Web site, epenaltybox.com. He is a corporate controller in California.

    Joseph Nieforth, a member of the Society of International Hockey Research, has contributed research to many web sites, STATS Inc., and
    Total Hockey: Seond Edition. He is involved with television productions and operations in Toronto.
