Miracle is my favourite hockey movie if not my favourite movie of all time. I love the story and everything about it, Ive even been to Lake placid to see all the sights and the arena and all that stuff. I always have been curious to see what actually happened to the players as I was not alive during most of their nhl careers. And what types of players they were ect. Anyone familiar with the players I have some questions. First Mark Pavelich, I was reading and it was saying he still holds the record for rookie points in a season for the rangers, and he seemed to put up decent stats for the next few years but he it seems he left the nhl? Does anyone know why he seemed like he was playing decently well but again this is from a stats point of view. Jim Craig, this guy was the mvp for the team and didnt really make an impression in the nhl, was it a case of peaked at the olympics and couldnt regain his magic? Or was he not given a chance? A few of the guys never played in the nhl at all like Verchota, Harrington, Wells at all, any reason for this? Were they simply not skilled enough? I know a good portion of them had good careers in the nhl but some only had average short careers. Im just looking on some insight from people who may have saw some of these guys play in the nhl and could give me a better insight on who they were as players.
