Yeah -- I hope they can pull things together. Sometimes I get into hysterics just because of fear. I do see improvements -- I just want assurances they will reach fruition in timely fashion and the team won't backslide. and of course I never condone tanking. The risk is far greater than any stupid draft reward that might come to pass.
Sean Brown... but I always kind of knew he sucked. He was a dope in real life too
Olivier - I only remember Olivier because hell...how long was he around even and, you know, actor, all that.
I think I didn't exactly over-rate Nystrom -- I just loved him. I think I didn't understand what a jackass he was though. He had a fuzzy moustach so he seemed as cuddly as a muppet not this evil cussing scrappy thing that he was.
I know I over-rate Mike Bossey. To this day I still feel like any time he wants he can just glide onto the ice and score a goal. He's just sucha great team guy he'd never steal anyone's limelight or make the game even remotely about him in any way shape or form.
and probably THE worst over-rate on my part is Bobby Ojeda. He had a good year as a pitcher. I thought he could win the Cy Young on his change-up alone. and morally -- I would have cast him as Dwight Tower in On the Beach. Even after hearing about how he was amongst a group of giggling baseball players hitting on a group of chorus girls in a show I knew. Things got aggressive even - and Bobby was reported to be laughing like a drunken jackass though not contributing to the fray. He'd have hitched a ride if someone was willing... yuck. When he got divorced, cut off his finger like a dope -- and then every thing else in the poor guys life. There comes a time stupidity and lack of talent just have to play a part - it's can't ALL be bad luck. :/ and now he's got like a GAGILLION kids and it looks like he got a nose job and -- I still love the doofus but he was not the day dream I made him out to be at all.
Scott Stevens... well - I finally got it right with that one
