This is the 15th in our summer series where we are drawing hockey cards at random from a box and then writing about them.
You know you’re in a bad place as an NHLer when this is the exchange that follows drawing your card out of the PBS dispenser:
Pookie: It’s Bill Guerin.
Pookie: As an Islander.
Pookie: Like how I have to specify which team he’s on for this one?
To be fair, the back of the card says this:
Playing for his fourth team in the last three seasons, Guerin appears to have found himself a home on the Isle, with a point-per-game start to the 2007-08 season.
To which Schnookie had to say, “But what about the end of the season?”
We checked, and it turns out he scored goals in six of his first ten games (during which he was also minus), then failed to score in the next 13 (during which he was even more minus). That’s funny — the card didn’t mention that. The card also doesn’t mention that Schnookie beat him up at the recent Draft.
Our picture of this card is fairly crappy because we’re too lazy to scan it and too lazy to try to get the camera to focus. Because we’re doing things the Butthead way. We were very impressionable young fans back when he hit 29 goals with a goodly number of games left in the season, then proclaimed, “If I don’t get 30, I’m stupid.” We all know how that turned out (if you don’t, you can guess). And so, doing things the Butthead way, we’ll say that if we can’t finish this post, we’re
