Maybe I'll bet on the Kings after all. Here comes another shootout win.
Oops.....I bet double the amount I was supposed to. Go Kings !!
Since I am under the weather I did not do a Facts on the Fly for this week, but here is a snippet of the Califonia/Oakland Seals team from 1968/69.
After the first year of existence the Seals, really worked with their roster. Only 7 of the original 20 players made it to play in the second season.
And one more:
At the end of the 1970 season, the Seals traded their pick in the first round of the 1971 draft to the Montreal Canadiens along with Francois Lacombe in return for Montreal's first round pick in 1970 (selected Chris Oddleifson), Ernie Hicke, and cash. As a result of the Seals' dreadful season, the Canadiens had the top pick in the draft, and used it to select future Hall of Famer Guy Lafleur. This transaction now ranks as one of the most one-sided deals in NHL history.
