June 23, 2001. My hometown Ottawa Senators, in the middle of a well-documented string of playoff chokes, were saddled with a monstrous millstone of a turdball of a purported number one centre named Alexei Yashin. I honestly wished the guy would just get hit by a bus just to get rid of him. At the same time, I was looking at this kid named Jason Spezza in the draft, the kind of player you wish you could draft for your team, but Ottawa had no shot at all to get him. Well, Ottawa got him... and Chara.
Sometimes, Milbury happens.
