Thanks for the memories and best of luck. It was time but he made a huge contribution during the back to back Cup runs. He was kid of the Gonchar of that group - a steadying vet who led by example.

I hated the signing when it happened. MC seemed like such a "meh" player, but he is the classic example of GIVING A GUY A CHANCE. I did, he won me over, again and again.

Leadership, team first mentality, and the odd clutch playoff goal or defensive play will always have him in my good books. Loved seeing him navigate the locker room with his boys too, that was special to watch.

I suspect we'll see Cully in management before too long.

Congrats Matt!

He was the type of leader you need in the locker room with a lot of young players. No matter how good of a leader Sid is, the younger guys can't look at him and say "If I work like him and prepare like him and play like him, I can be like him." You need a player that has worked a long career as a mid- to low-level player. Whose work and preperation made them valuable to teams for decades.

Such a huge goal in that series - love that Bob Cole is calling it too.
