    Not bad for Brittain to be compared to J-S Giguere

    And 1 closer

    Nothing except moose calves and chainsaws to add from up here in North Park, but even material like that gets this thread one post closer to "Tool Up!" - end of the day for our trail crew. Any post that doesn't have to be placed in a hole dug into rocky soil is an easy one.
    Hopefully you don't run into any Moose Knuckles.

    It's like the MD telethon: "dig deep, we're almost at our goal."

    Well, you might as well go here too to finish it off. Read or watch them all.

    I always think of Maggie and Koroll when I think of the Blackhawks, but we shouldn't forget Jim Wiste, Wayne Smith, Lynn Powis and Rich Preston. Add Rob Palmer. (Thanks Bagman)There may be others, but these names were familiar.
    I've posted before the story that Wiste told me of going into the hotel room he shared with Bobby Hull, to find that Bobby was, uh, busy with a lady fan. Bobby's response to the intrusion? "Come on in, kid" Think about Cliff Koroll, he had about a ten year NHL career with the Hawks, scored a couple of hundred goals, is one of the Blackhawks all time career scorers--and never made all WCHA, let alone all American. Cliff was offered a tryout by the Denver Bears (AAA baseball) and after he'd lost several balls over the left field wall, they offered him a contract on the spot. After the '68 nc game, I recall Cliff taking a little "nap" in the bathtub of the room he shared with Maggie.

    I had forgotten (if I was ever aware) the other Pioneers you named in your post. During the Hilltopper game his freshman year (remember, they were ineligible in those days) a brash Maggie skated over to all American Wayne Smith and put the wood to him, just to introduce himself.

    Powis I knew played in the NHL (Kansas City, IIRC) and had great potential but Murray kicked him off the team for coming into the Arena one night with a snootful and roughing up one of those 70 year old security dudes. Powis got his picture in SI in the story about the '69 title.
