One of the less heralded heists pulled off by Harry Sinden was trading a soon to be 32 year old Ken Hodge to the NY Rangers after the 1975-76 season in exchange for a promising 22 year old winger named Rick Middleton. I don't know why the last place Rangers would make that trade - it's not like the Islanders fans had started their "1940" taunts then. Tonight and 402 goals for the Bruins later, Nifty gets his number 16 retired. So let's start a new winning streak. Let's go!
