Here is a list off the top of my head in which I can think of players who either had a really bad game, or did something very flukish that they wish they can take back. Gerry Cheevers - In the third game of the '79 Challenge Cup with the Russians against the NHL all-stars for whatever reason Cheevers was put in net and we all know the outcome. A 6-0 shellacking by the Russians. I often wonder why Bowman didnt put Dryden or Esposito in there instead. Mike Liut - Well what game is synonymous with Mike Liut's name? Yeap the 1981 Canada Cup final vs. the Russians. An 8-1 thumping! Yeah all of the Canadian team played bad that game, Gretzky, Potvin etc.. but Mike has got to wish he could take that one back. Unfortunately he was never forgiven for that. Steve Smith - Game 7 2nd round vs. the Flames. Steve banks the puck in off Fuhr rom behind the net accidentally. Even though there was still time left in the third to win the Oilers lost, and Steve had that on his mind I'm sure for a year. Todd Bertuzzi - March 8, 2004. We all know what this one is about. If things were handled differetly we wouldnt be talking about it and Bertuzzi would have won a World Cup for Canada. Tommy Salo - Quarter finals vs. Belarus in '02 Olympics. What a way to lose! Eddie Johnston - '71 Game 2 of round 1 vs. Montreal. Boston is far and away the best team in the league. They win Game 1, and then Sinden promises to put in Eddie for Game 2 over Cheevers. Going into the third the Bruins are up 5-2 and Montreal storms back and wins 7-5. If they win that game, there is no way Montreal comes back. Vladislav Tretiak/Vladimir Myshkin - These guys were both great goalies no doubt. Both would have been very good in the NHL. But in the they have to be kicking themselves for the Miracle on Ice game in '80. Tretiak allows a fluke goal with one second left in the 1st to have the USA tie it. And then gets benched and then Myshkin allows two gials in the third, the tying goal and the winner by Eurizione right through his legs. Yeah the Russians let up too often in that game anyways but Myshkin shut out the NHL all-stars a year earlier then he loses to College boys? Great story though. Don Cherry - His '79 blunder in Game 7 vs. the Habs proves how important a line change is. Any others you can think of?
