Physical, no-nonsense defenseman Mike Christie is a poster boy for defunct franchises.  He broke in with the California Golden Seals and moved with them to Cleveland.  Halfway through the Barons second and final season, he was dealt to the Colorado Rockies, for whom he had he longest NHL tenure and even served a season as team captain for coach Don Cherry.
