- Oct 2, 2005Thanks, ... so it seems like Detroit never gave him a chance in their
organization as he never did play a game for them or the Fort Worth
Wings. Perhaps this was indicative of the downfall of that franchise
in the 70's?
On the other hand, the Habs sure got a lot of mileage out of him. What
team wouldn't want a big fiery French-Canadian who could get you a
consistent 20+ goals a season?
