    Newest member of the HHOF Adam Oates!

    " The two roomed together on the road, hung out at home and made life hell for opposing defensemen and goaltenders. In 195 games with the Blues over parts of three seasons, Oates scored 58 goals and added an incredible 228 assists. Hull scored 228 goals, for a remarkable average of 76 goals a season over those three seasons. "

    What could they have put up together if Oates had remained in St. Louis ?

    and AO wasn't even drafted....

    acquired for Janney & Quintal, another steal from Uncle Harry....

    only 3 players in history have a better assists per game average than Oates....  Gretzky, Lemieux, & #4....

    The day he was named coach of the Capitols, he was also named to the HHOF pretty cool.

    That's quite the supremely talented group he's entering with in Sundin, Sakic and Bure.

      I was thinking the same thing for a favorite Oats Bruin moment. That was the turning point in that series. I almost forgot how brutal those Sabres announcers were & still are. LOL  Adam Oates - a total class act.

    Travesty:  Oates spoke up and they traded him within hours.

    I harbor some bitterness for the Bruins over that.
