They had the pressure. When you win the President's Trophy you're supposed to be a pretty good club -- and they were -- but we were the underdogs and just came in played. That got us through.
"Todd Douglas Ross Harvey" is a Canadian former professional ice hockey forward. He was selected in the first round of the 1993 NHL Entry Draft, 9th overall, by the Dallas Stars, following a successful junior career, which included being the captain of the Canada/Canadian team at the World Junior Hockey Championships.
Harvey grew up in the small town of Sheffield, Ontario and played his minor hockey for the Beverly Bandits of the Ontario Minor Hockey Association/OMHA before playing Jr.B. hockey at age 14 for the Cambridge Winterhawks. He spent two seasons playing Jr.B. in the OHA before being selected 1st overall in the 1991 OHL Priority Selection by the Detroit Jr. Red Wings of the OHL.
Although a first round selection, Harvey was never able to live up to the offensive expectations that accompanied his draft position. His intense style of hockey and smallish frame lead to numerous injuries, and after three seasons in Dallas, and a brief stint with the New York Rangers, Harvey was dealt to the San Jose Sharks, where he played a key role as a checking forward and an agitator. In his fifth season with the Sharks, Harvey was sent to the minors, and allowed to leave as a free agent.More Todd Harvey on Wikipedia.
That first round is always the toughest to get through. Anything can happen.
That's playoffs. The puck came around, he got it and just shot it. It's not like he picked the top corner. It's a tough way to lose, but that's a part of the game.
He has to keep everyone on the same page and bring the team together because they are not playing for the guy on the back they are playing for the crest on the front. Since it is a high-profile team like ours, it is all about getting guys to buy in.
