#93 Goes To The Rafters Tonight

from Wendel Clark at the Toronto Sun,

In looking back at the period of my career when I had the privilege of calling Doug Gilmour a teammate with the Maple Leafs, one thing will always stand out.

During the back-to-back seasons of 1992-93 and ‘93-94, when we made it to the conference final on each of those occasions, Dougie was more than just the best player on our team. He was arguably the best player in the entire National Hockey League.

That might be construed as a bit of a bold statement. But for me, looking back, I didn’t see anyone better during those two seasons….

Two months ago, I had the honour of having a banner with my No. 17 go into the rafters. Tonight, Dougie’s No. 93 will go up there too.

It is very well-deserved, Dougie. Congratulations.
