God’s Beer League Just Got A Whole Lot Tougher

At the 1994 entry draft, John Ferguson, then the Senators Director of Player Personnel, convinced GM Randy Sexton to take a flyer with their 6th round pick (133rd overall) on a skinny European kid no one had ever heard of. Years later, that player admitted that even he didn’t think the NHL would draft him. That skinny kid’s name was Daniel Alfredsson.

Big John passed away of cancer on the weekend. Five For Smiting extends our heartfelt condolences to the entire Ferguson family.

We would also council Satan to think twice before going into the corners from now on.
