A former All-Star and a longtime two-way stud for the Winnipeg Jets, Doug Smail was traded to the North Stars early in the 1990-91 season. He appeared in 57 games for the Stars, scoring 20 points, and did not appear in the playoffs during the team's run to the Stanley Cup Finals. He hung on for two more years (one each with Quebec and Ottawa) before finishing his career overseas. It's kind of a shame -- he was a terrific player, but North Stars fans only got to see a shadow of what he once was.
