Last night, The 6th Sens e-mailed me and told me about a little piece that ran on November the 10th over at their site. It discusses the un-discussable: an apparent trade rumor in 1996 that would have sent THE captain, Stevie-Y and Chris Osgood to Ottawa for Alexei Yashin, Damian Rhodes and Ottawa’s first round picks in 1996 and 1997.
Detroit would have burned…again.
So in the spirit of some cross-blog promotion and the fact that it’s a pretty interesting read, I would happily recommend that you go over and read the entire piece by clicking here.
It is certainly a deal that would have completely changed this franchise as we know it today.
