from the windsor Star’s Bob Duff:
“I asked to be traded from Detroit,” Sillinger said. “I remember it to this day.
I was a young guy playing behind (Steve) Yzerman, (Sergei) Fedorov, (Dino) Ciccarelli, (Ray) Sheppard, (Paul) Ysebaert, (Jimmy) Carson—the list goes on.
“I feel very fortunate to have played with so many classy players, so many all-stars. They broke in the young kid the right way and it’s something I’ve tried to pass on.”
From Detroit, his odyssey took him to Anaheim, then Vancouver, Philadelphia, Tampa Bay, Florida, Ottawa, Columbus, Phoenix, St. Louis and Nashville before coming to the Isles as a free agent last summer.
