Default Remember when that guy played for that team?

Inspired by the discussion in the opt-out thread... let's talk about guys whose tenures with a certain team you completely forgot about.

Mike Green's two-game Oilers tenure seems very likely to join this club in a few years. But who else do you totally forget played with a certain team? Who looks so out of place in a certain jersey?

Here's a couple to start off...

Keith Tkachuk, Atlanta Thrashers



This one is super weird. Tkachuk was traded to Bob Hartley's Thrashers at the 2007 deadline, played in Atlanta's one and only playoff series ever, got swept, and went right back to St. Louis in UFA.

Jaroslav Halak, Buffalo Sabres



Halak was traded to Buffalo in the Ryan Miller-to-STL trade, but only dressed for one game as a backup before being dealt immediately to the Capitals. Speaking of which...

Jaroslav Halak, Washington Capitals



I have no idea either.

Anton Stralman, Calgary Flames



Oh what could have been. Given away for basically nothing after a couple preseason games.

Let's see some more.

These are all of the same player.







Curtis Glencross as a Mighty Duck, a Blue Jacket, and an Oiler.

I clearly remember Glencross as a Blue Jacket and Oiler specifically.

He dominated the Flames

Thanks for that. Saw the pic in the other thread but was having a complete brain block and could not remember his name.

To add to the discussion: Both Fuhr and Cujo playing for a year in Calgary still seems like something I dreamt up.

A few Flames goalies for the list...



Niklas Backstrom, 4 games played for the Flames, 2 against the Wild.




Darryl finally got the former-Sharks goalie he really wanted. Toskala, 6 GP with the Flames.




Cujo, 9 games + 2 playoff games for the Flames.

Oh I'm aware. But for whatever reason in my brain he never played for anyone other than the Jets or the Ducks. I don't recall his SJ years either.

This one always seems like it never really happened. Only reason I remember is cause when I played with the Hawks NHL 03 or whatever it was, I always had to promote him to the first line manually.

Another one I always forget is Bobby Orr in Chicago. Played 26 games over 2 seasons at the end of his career before retiring.

Look at that tan! I'm betting a lot of rounds of golf led to that!
