IT'S A DC ONE TIMER CONTEST!
Who doesn't remember Jim Carey the Net Detective?
He was my FAVORITE player growing up and the day he was traded I literally cried. My parents saw the cover of the sports page and sat me down and broke the news. I know...lame.
- Carey had a very short NHL career, but he skyrocketed to stardom with his brilliant play.
- He won the 1996 Vezina Trophy, which had previously been considered a lock for the dominant Dominik Hasek.
- As quickly as Carey gained his star status, though, it seemed to disappear, as he was traded in a blockbuster deal to the Boston Bruins in the 1996-97 season though he was never able to match his brilliant play as a Capital.
- His confidence on the decline, he played two seasons with the Bruins, then signed on with the St. Louis Blues, only to play in four games without any significant accomplishments.
- He played two games with the IHL Cincinnati Cyclones where he suffered an inner ear concussion
- He never played again.
So, I am having a CONTEST
- The person who can tell me what Jim Carey is currently doing with proof (say an article) wins a 25.00 gift certificate to NHL.com
- If no one can find out what he is currently doing, the person with the FUNNIEST IDEA of where he is wins.
- I will post the funny ideas on the site as I get them.
- Please send your funny ideas or sad truth of where he is to DCONETIMER@MAC.COM
