    I've seen one of these before, it would be cool to have it going again.

    You know the drill - I ask a question, you all guess, and whoever gets it right gets to ask the next question.

    First question:

    Who is the New York Rangers all-time plus/minus leader?

    Educated guess. I was wavering between Seiling and Park.

    Edit: Next question is forthcoming.

    Marco Sturm? Educated guess for me. I know it almost certainly isn't Uwe Krupp and after that the Germans are scarce

    No on both counts ... or to any other player still in the NHL.

    i had to research it (no i didn't google it but went through seasons and looked up players)

    pretty sure it is Uli Hiemer. Man that's obscure

    Yup, just has to be Uli Hiemer.

    "Oct. 31, 1984, when the Devils scored five goals, Uli Hiemer had a hat trick, and Joe Cirella scored twice."

    Fascinating that he in just 19 NHL goals scored a hattrick.

    there way it works it when you answer the question right--you then get to ask the next one or ask someone to post the next one

    here is one

    What Vancouver trade is responsible for the Nucks having both Sedins and Luongo and bonus points--name the GM who did that trade(it is the trade responsible for the nucks getting the parts required to make the other trades)---more info then I should give

    hint the trade in question did not happen on draft day

    It was the midseason 1997-98 trade of Trevor Linden that brought back Bertuzzi (Luongo) and McCabe (traded up to get 2nd Sedin)

    I forget the GM, but that was just for bonus points anyway.


    next question: name the two unrelated NHL stars (past or present unspecified) born on the same day in the same year.

    That's an easy one, but I'll let someone else have a go since I've already gotten one.

    Pretty sure it's Patrick Roy and Mario Lemieux


    EDIT: Looked it up, that is correct.


    Next Question: Which goalie has played on the most NHL teams?
