Glen Wesley Retires and How He Still Haunts the Canucks

From TSN.ca:

For the past decade, Glen Wesley helped shepherd the Carolina Hurricanes from homeless vagabonds in North Carolina to Stanley Cup champions.

Now, the last remaining original Hurricane is calling it a career.

After 20 seasons in the NHL and 13 as one of the most popular faces of the Hurricanes' franchise, Wesley announced his retirement Thursday because of family reasons. The team then gave the defenceman a job in the front office and pledged to retire his No. 2 jersey.
Canucks fans remember this all too well (not in a good way), but in 1986, the Canucks traded Cam Neely and a 1st round draft pick in 1987 to the Boston Bruins to acquire Barry Pederson. The Bruins used the draft pick to select Wesley. It's easily one of the worst trades in Canucks history, and now that Neely and Wesley have retired, can we finally forget it ever happened?

Not quite yet.

Neely, of course, retired as a Bruin, but check out how the Bruins have parlayed Wesley into some good assets.

At 24, Dennis Wideman has blossomed into the Bruins' number two defenseman, averaging 25+ minutes per game and finishing 25th in scoring among all NHL defenemen; Milan Lucic is quickly reminding Bruins fans of a young Cam Neely; and Brad Marchand is thought of to be a very good prospect, especially after a successful junior career.

We may hear about "the trade" for years to come.

Some reaction from the 'Canes blogosphere:

It's funny how Brad Boyes' name gets tossed in here (knowing that you have a man-crush on him).

Boyes was drafted 24th overall in the 2000 entry draft by the Maple Leafs. Guess who drafted 23rd? The Canucks. The pick? Nathan Smith.

I swear the Canucks must have an aversion to OHL players (see: taking Kesler before Mike Richards or Corey Perry).

The Kesler pick is gonna be a great one. Hes developin a little slower than Perry, but is WAY ahead of Richards.
As for the Neely trade, it made sense back then, and shouldnt be looked upon as a bad trade. Neely was whiner here, and built that reputation in Boston also. Good riddance to than lumbering winger...

Tragic trivia...

Pederson won a Stanley Cup. Neely never did. Neely made the hall of fame. Pederson never will.
