Turn your head and cough please....thank you.
Mr. Hanlon, you've been diagnosed with BADCARDPHOTOITIS.
See for yourself....
Ouch. That hurts.
Why O-Pee-Chee decided to use this photo in their 1987/88 'mini card' set is beyond me.
Would this be considered an 'action shot'?
Why Glen Hanlon was even included in this set is a head scratcher. He never really was given the reigns as a starter throughout his 13 year career. He only played in 50 or more games in a season twice. He cracked the 20 win mark twice. He played on 4 different NHL teams (never lasting more than 5 years in any one place).
So what made him so special in the 87/88 season?
According to the card back, he finished fifth in goals against average (GGA) with a 3.18.
An interesting tidbit - a GAA of 3.18 would land you THIRD LAST place this season (behind Atlanta's Ondrej Pavelec and Calgary's latest acquisition Vesa Toskala).
Way to go Glen. That cup shifting really must have helped.
But, fifth place is not good enough here.
To the bike spokes!!
And Why Did I Buy This Hockey Card?
