I would love for TT to attain the level of Gump Worsley... but there's still a long way to go.
For the record, Gump was 23 when he broke in with the Rangers in 52/53.
Ironically, the next year Gump was back with the Vancouver Canucks (WHL) as he had lost his job to a 28 year old rookie by the name of Johnny Bower for the 53/54 season.
That must have pissed Gump off, because the next year 54/55 he took the job back and Bower got sent to Vancouver. Bower eventually went to Toronto.
Gump is well known for a quote when he played for the hapless Rangers. The interviewer asked Gump which team gave him the most trouble...
Gumps answer? "The Rangers"
