Having typed out the roster, I am really enjoying just staring at it. Over the next several entries, we’ll compare these guys to the current team.

  • Garrett79

    Where’s Rick Knickle?

    • Quisp

      I only included players who appeared in the playoffs. 

  • Nut

    Blake-Zhitnik (*swoon)


    Now I’m dredging up old feelings. They shoulda fuckin won it.  If (IF) the Kings make super-happy-time this year, Montreal can thank us for lifting the ‘curse of the curve’ call. Then, in a perfect world, we’ll meet ‘em next year and repeat at their expense. Only then will they be allowed to win it again.

  • USHA#17

    Memory is a funny thing, I always thought Steve Kasper (at the time the ugliest man in hockey and the best in the circle) was part of that team.

    • Quisp

      Kasper and Duchesne were traded in the ’91 off-season for Jeff Chychrun and the rights to Jari Kurri. See “Philly West ” link under “Forum+” above.

  • Geoff DeSouza

    Ah, sweet memories of watching them win Game 2 live at MLG, (and then nearly getting killed while being the only person cheering for the Kings in Game 7 during a house party).

    Also: this was a pretty awesome team in NHL 94, especially once you moved Marty McSorley off the first defence pair.
