I Understand Most Shoddy Reportings, But NHL.com?

Mike G. Morreale, you are a winner.  You write for NHL.com.  That being the case, how can you make such a terrible error about the NHL?

"The 6-foot-9, 260-pound Chara, a player on the hated rival of the team upon whose ice he stood, established a new standard in the Cisco Hardest Shot event when he skated into his second attempt and clocked 105.4 mph before a stunned, yet appreciative, crowd at Bell Centre. The cannon shot enabled the gentle giant to best a 16-year-old mark held by another former Bruin, Al Iafrate (105.2 mph), who set the standard as a member of the Toronto Maple Leafs."

Leafs?  Further inspection found that the 105.2 mph shot was done in 1993.  Quick look at the stat line reveals...

1992-93

Washington Capitals

Guilty of failure to check his facts while wanting to bring more good names of good old Canadian teams into the conversation.

I feel better now.
