Now, that's a name I haven't heard in a long time... a long time

I was poking around TSN.ca just now and I came across a mention of Jason Strudwick. I always found Strudwick to be a sad character when he was a Canuck, because he was both an assistant captain and a healthy scratch every second game. This is, in retrospect, reminiscent of Li'l Brudder, or the Little Engine that Could (but couldn't, because he "Lacks offensive acumen. Doesn't have the foot speed or puck-handling ability to be anything more than a depth defenseman. Might be better suited to playing wing in a limited role, mainly because of his limitations.", according to TSN).

But you can still click here for all the Strudwick you can handle: straight outta 2001, Strudwick's own fan site, jasonstrudwick.ca (which isn't actually at http://www.jasonstrudwick.ca/). It even has an animated Flash splash screen.

This is the most obscure thing I expect to see in several days. If being Strudwick is like being Rudy, then being Strudwick's biggest fan is like stalking Peri Gilpin.

Not only do I get it, I proclaim it to be "awesome."

Sorry for coming late to the party.
