Is this J. Jonah Jameson?
For the uninitiated, the man in the picture is Damien Cox of the Toronto Star. He does a weekly mailbag where he answers his most obsequious readers' questions. We don't have enough readers here to run our own mailbag so we'll borrow Cox's questions. I'm sure he won't mind. He'll be glad to know that I don't bother reading his answers to these questions. If you're interested, you can read his answers here. Mine are over the jump.

If we were to go back in time to 2008 let's say and I asked you to name players on the Atlanta Thrashers, you'd probably have a hard time naming players after you rattled off Ilya Kovalchuk and Colby Armstrong. The fact is, they were essentially the Atlanta Kovalchuks.

Almost thirty years ago, the Chicago Black Hawks (two words in those days) were ready to face-off against the about-to-explode Edmonton Oilers in the Campbell Conference Championship Series. The Hawks finished the season with 104 points. The Oilers had 106. Yappy Glen Sather behind the Oilers’ bench. Portly Orval Tessier guiding the Hawks. After the first two games of that series, played in Edmonton, the Hawks were down two games-to-none and had been outscored 16-6. And that’s when Orval Tessier said it.
