I love this photo. Harold Ballard once said about Inge Hammarstrom “he could go into the corner with six eggs in his pocket and not break any of them.” This photo brings Harold’s words into view perfectly. Nilsson doesn’t know where the puck is and doesn’t care, he just needs to get out of the area immediately.
Row-bear has been re-called today, with JFJ going down to the farm.
If the Oilers could get them into a transporter and have their DNA mixed up like Tuvok and Neelix one of the guys who gets beamed up could play NHL hockey and the other could deliver drinks to customers.
Nilsson isn’t a bad hockey player, but lordy he looks like a tweener (a guy who can’t put up results despite looking like a player) and Jacques is a player who looks like a tweener whenever he plays for the Oilers.
If I was in Vegas and had $500 to put on one playing more career games than the other, I’d bet on the Quebec kid. However, it’s a snail’s race at this point.
