Bob Murdoch...does anyone know what happened that led to relatively quick exit from the NHL? He played in 78-79 with the Blues, put up fairly decent numbers on a bad team...then was in the minors for a season after that and done. Injuries? Just lost a gear? Other?
BTW, my first post on this forum, and before growing up a Washington Capitals fan in Connecticut(I liked the underdogs as a kid) I pulled for the Barons, and always hated the fact they left so quickly. Naturaly, I feel the same way about the Seals...I was a bit too young to really know much about them, but have a soft spot for them. I guess I should find the Scouts and Rockies board as well
