Q & A: Troy Crowder

I'd like to thank Troy again for his time.

Once again, I'd like to also thank Jon (Merlin401) for helping me out.

Great stuff, as always, never gets old reading these things. I love hearing guys from his era say how bad the game sucks now. I only wish the right people would listen to them.

Excellent article. That season in Detroit was such a letdown.

Does anyone know if he is related to Chase Crowder of the OHL's Saginaw Spirit?

Really awsome read!
Crowder and Probert fights were simply great. I always wanted to see their first bout where Probert gets bloodied.
Thanks for the read and great clips!

This was great. Thanks for putting this together - the Crowder clips are absolute classics. From the pummelings of Coxe and Chycrun, to the great battles with Probert, to the 88 series with the B's, to the great night in Toronto where the Leafs were looking for payback on Slava Fetisov. In his pretty short career, Crowder was involved in some great stuff.

I think the best part of the clips are the commentary from Gary Thorne, especially on the Coxe fight - "he hasn't fought in 2 years and he won't fight for another 2 b/c he just got beat up!"

BTW, I've been dying to see the Probert/Crowder fights for a long time and wow - some nasty stuff there. In Rd 2 at the Joe, the punch Probert took at the end of that fight that snapped his head back and he still continued shows how hard of a chin Probert had. When he was on a mission, you couldn't hurt him. Like a man possessed, almost like he was sniffing something......oh wait, that's for another thread!
