This is not a vent board or any other kind of therapy. Before you hit the POST button, ask yourself if your contribution will add to the level of discussion going on.
Important notes on articles:
- Please do not copy entire articles into your post; rather, provide links to them.. We are now links-only for ALL Internet publications. If only a small portion of the article pertains to your post, Fair Use allows you to copy those one or two paragraphs, provided you cite the author's name and the publication for which he writes. Otherwise, put a link in the HTTP Link box.
- Even if you're copying a reference to an article, provide a link to the page from which the article came. We're trying to cut down on duplicate topics, and the posting process will check the link to your article to see if it's already being discussed on this board. At the very least, you'll save yourself some grief on the boards.
- If your first reaction after reading the article you're going to share is the author is uninformed / stupid / a jerk / all of the above, it's not worth sharing with anyone. Not every article needs to be discussed. The more the hair-pulling articles are discussed (e.g. ESPN Page 2), the more the authors will write hair-pulling articles.

Unfortunately, those were all before my time by garbageplate
I've seen highlights of the fog game between Buffalo and Philly with former Sabres announcer Jim Lorentz killing a bat, and heard some of the stories, but it's another world for me. Schultz never scored more than 40 points in a year and he said on his interview that he got sent down to Rochester by Scotty Bowman after a brief stint in Buffalo, which effectively ended his NHL career.
I enjoy hearing about those days. I'm sure I would've enjoyed that era of hockey.
EDIT- linking an interesting story that I found from Schultz from the NYT in 1982 with some regrets about his career.
