    Pretty sure if all of the Survivor cast were hockey fans, most of them would not know who Tom Laidlaw is.

    If it makes anyone feel better, they've had other celebrities in the past that weren't recognized. Former baseball player Jeff Kent was one. There was also a former NFL QB at some point (and he was only recognized by one person).

    Writer of the weekly Top 10 column.

    12-team Keeper pool, straight points for forwards & dmen. Goalies get: 2 points per win, 3 per shutout, 1 point per assist & 1 point per shootout loss.

    League champ in 2013, 2015 and 2018.

    Top 8 forwards, 5 dmen and 2 goalies count.

    We keep 15 players (any position) plus two rookies.

    Forwards: Kopitar, Voracek, E. Staal, Marchessault, Granlund, Couturier, Guentzel, Pettersson, Dadonov, Glass, Dube, Necas, Andersson, Ho-Sang
    Defence: Gostisbehere, Suter, Boqvist, Krug, Ekman-Larsson
    Goalies: Hellebuyck, Rinne, Crawford, Rask

    I just missed that era. My first cards were the early 90s Pro Set. Remembering obscure players either comes from those cards or from the early video games.

    There was a great video I saw somewhere back in the late 80s or early 90s about the Kings. There was part of that where they filmed a bunch of practical jokes (talcum powder in the hairdryer etc) pulled off by Tom Laidlaw. Luc Robitaille was on the receiving end the hair dryer gag - when Luc was pranked he shook his head and said “Oh Laidlaw”.
    I think McSorley was in it too.
    Oh Laidlaw.

    I've watched it on and off throughout the years . its something the wife and I could spend time with .

    we both agreed that it should be an individual game right from the beginning instead of having 2 or so seperate tribes then re-shuffling the tribes over and over so we've kinda Axed it (no pun intended). You can add some tweaks so that a super group of players wouldnt destroy the weaker ones .
