I am Tom Glavine

Professional career[edit]
 
Glavine was drafted by both the Los Angeles Kings in the 1984 NHL Entry Draft (in the 4th round, 69th overalltwo rounds ahead of future National Hockey League star Brett Hull and five rounds ahead of Luc Robitaille, both 2009 Hockey Hall of Fame inductees), and the Atlanta Braves Major League Baseball organization in the 2nd round of the 1984 amateur baseball draft.

You know, when Naf posted the kings draft list, I saw Tom Glavines name and thought, hmmm, I wonder if he is any relation to the old braves pitcher who was so prominent in the playoffs all those years........
 :Iduno:


Very interesting that he named in the NHL draft right out of an american hi school. He must have been very good.
I don't even think drafting hi school students is allowed anymore.

Yeah, I saw you trying so hard.
You should have known it was a trick from others I did!

I knew it was a trick question, but I was looking towards it being a guy who was an NHL HOF'er for something other than as a player.
Never thought of it being a HOF'er in a different sport, even with the fact I noted Glavines name in the draft list.  :doh:.

Toronto Maple Leafs Jersey History

A Proud Franchise With Strong Tradition And Rich History

13 Stanley Cups

The Toronto Maple Leafs have an incredibly rich history and are arguably the most storied franchise in all of hockey. While the tradition runs deep with 13 Stanley Cups, the last of which came in 1967, the organization was considered a dynasty in the 1940's and 1960's only to be followed by five long decades of drought that began with the Ballard years up until the present day. While a resurgence through the Pat Burns teams of the 1990's and Pat Quinn in the early 2000's brought some respectability back to the organization despite still falling short, the patience of every Leafs fan is at an all time high. And yet an undying support with fierce loyalty for the Blue and White also remains. With the arrival of Brendan Shanahan, Lou Lamoriello and Mike Babcock, Leafs Nation remains cautiously optimistic that our beloved Buds have finally turned the corner to put Canada's Team back on the map.
