    Absolutely correct! Congratulations Jim at
    Blueshirt Banter.

    Wikipedia: Lorne John "Gump" Worsley (1929 – 2007)... Was affectionately known to Minnesota North Stars fans as "the Gumper".

    Things never change with Rangers management.
    Hockey Hall of Fame: Gump Worsley -- Gump said: "I was with Muzz Patrick (general manager of the New York Rangers) the night before I got traded. I asked him, 'Am I being traded?' He said, 'No, you'll be a Ranger for the rest of your career.' So I came home and one of my buddies called me and said, 'You've been traded to Montreal.' I said, 'Oh yeah, sure. Tell me another one.' He said, 'Turn on the radio.' So I was sitting in my backyard and I turned on the radio and sure enough, I'd been traded."...

    I had a feeling that Gump might still have a lot of fans and this one would go pretty quickly. Gotta love the name "Gump" Worsley. Before Forrest, there was Worsley.

    Playing without a mask all those years you know he might have had a screw or two loose, in a good kind of way.
