That would require Bill Wirtz to actually spend money. What are the odds?

Harvey the Hound may be the first mascot in the NHL, but he didn't join when the Flames moved to Calgary. I only know this because in the 2003-4 season, I went to a game which proclaimed it was Harvey the Hound's 20th birthday. The 16th of February, 1984 was the debut of Harvey. Why this knowledge remains in my head is a mystery to me.
Not to mention that he beat the entire world of hockey at the 1988 Winter Olympics. That had to be one of the great underappreciated sporting achievements ever--he was tremendous, and led the Czechs to victory over teams loaded up with talent.
