I think I have the opposite memory of Chris Terreri. When I was a young kid just breaking into hockey, I remember him as Marty's backup. One game he must've let up a few goals pretty quick the first time I remember anyone besides Marty in net, and that was it. No one was quite as terrible as he was to me. I have inflated memories of Clemmer, like a lot of you guys remembering Ari Ahonen and Corey Schwab, I thought he was going to be big time.For some reason, Arturs Irbe always sticks out for me remembering him being fantastic in Carolina's 02 run when they knocked us out in the first round no problem.
Most of my oversized memories are of old Nets and Mets players. Keith Van Horn I'll always think was unstoppable. Mehmet Okur when the Jazz made that run to the conference finals. And back in the Mets glory days, my favorite players were guys like Xavier Nady, Paul Lo Duca, Oliver Perez. God, that 06 team. I'll also always think Nick Markakis is the best right fielder in the majors. And if Bob Stumpo ever breaks into the league, watch the fvck out. A few doubles up in Lakewood is apparently all it takes for me.
