No, wait, I sit corrected. There was one name that was all too familiar to me, the Chron said, "San Jose also acquired Anaheim's 2013 seventh-round pick, previously held by the Avalanche, and sent minor leaguers Mike Connelly and Michael Sgarbossa to Colorado in the deal that came just before the NHL trade deadline."
Seriously? I mean, the guy can write like nobody else, but I would have to say that the only fifty-six year-old man that could play hockey at that age was Gordie Howe, and that was not at an NHL-level. So, we really got the better of that deal. Then again, long road trips would never be boring as he would certainly be the best raconteur in NHL history.
Of course you know that I'm kidding right? There's no way that the player and the writer are not the same...and if you don't? Well, do I have the investment opportunity of a lifetime for you! I'll be opening my chain of steakhouses in India, so all you have to do is email me your bank account information, and watch as the millions roll in.
BTW, the San Francisco Chronicle was kind of lazy with their fact-checking, as the player's name is Michael Connolly (NHL.com would know, right?).
*The Avs are the Colorado Avalanche.
