    I was so, so angry at that trade. And then Sandstrom became one of my all time favorite Kings. That rare combination of skill and grit. Him, Deadmarsh, Richards. All guys cut from the same cloth. Turcotte has those same qualities, hopefully they'll translate to the NHL.

    I remember a LOT of people were upset....yet I was celebrating however. I never cared for Bernie "Hit'em with your purse" Nicholls.

    The sad part for me was when after the 90-91 season they broke up the line of Gretz-Sandstrom-Granato. I never quite understood that one. I'm sure it had something to do with Kurri joining the team but I thought it was a mistake.
