The Diachronic Barber Pole Observations of a Recovering Hockey Exile

Strachan on Bowman

November 13, 2009, by Homme De Sept-Iles

“The team flew into Minnesota and was on a pretty good streak when Scotty called in the press and announced that he was benching Steve Shutt that night.  This was the year Shutt ended up with 60 goals (HDS: 76-77) so he was really pissed off.  Shutty told Lafleur, who wasn’t too happy to be losing his left winger, and the veterans’ committee called a meeting.  They then took the grievance to Bowman who let them talk him into reinstating Shutt, who played that night as the Habs bombed the North Stars.”
