Recchi Started The Movement

from the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette,
Long before this episode of Extreme Makeover, long before cost certainty and a certain ping-pong ball bounced his club's way, this free-agent signee stood by himself. A lone star. Alone. For 121/2 months. He was the biggest such signee by his club in almost a decade and a half, yet he also was the biggest target of hockey abuse hurled across his homeland. All because he joined a team that was last place in every NHL regard: standings, attendance, free spenders, free-agent destinations, arena age ... Kevin in Kamloops, you're on the air with Mark Recchi. Yeah, Mark, why on earth the Penguins?
