    True that.
    Couldn't do anything with it, though.

    ah yes... Kirk Muller! He had a spark.

    I saw him last year I think it was participating in a WPT tournament. He made it to the final table if I recall. Nice guy.

    I loved the Habs players from '80s. Remember Mike McPhee?

    Mike McPhee...GREAT choice.

    He was always one of my faves. Not much style or skill, but he'd never stop trying.

    And to put a smile on your face, remember Gaston Gingras' skating strides?

    Back to the present, we might hate the jersey he wears but I have a lot of respect for the way John Mitchell plays the game (from what I've seen).

    He had a goal tonight.

    Brooks Laich's another - probably not as unsung in Sens land, though, since we let him go. Crying

    Sometimes players have to go elsewhere to find themselves, and be found, yes?

    And how about Pit Martin?

    The ultimate unsung player...
