On February 7, 1996, What is believed to be one of the worst trades in NHL history occurred. What seemed to be an already utterly gloomy year for Winnipeg Jets fans got even worse. After the rising NHL market in the United States forced small market teams like the Winnipeg Jets to sell their franchise to American businessmen Steven Gluckstern and Richard Burke, fans in Winnipeg were still shocked to hear their star player was traded for a couple of promising young players.

Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals between my beloved Toronto Maple Leafs and the Boston Bruins. To understand why this game was so important to me, let’s back up a bit, shall we?

As many of you may have noticed by the banner in my signature and many of my posts, I’ve made it fairly obvious that I collect Sergei Bobrovsky and that he is my favorite goalie in the league. With that said here’s the story of how he became my favorite and how the collection began.
Now, I will admit I haven’t been a hockey fan for long and haven’t followed the game as long as most of the members on the site but when I finally did get into it, I was hooked. When I was More >
