“Hey, remember the 90s? I sure do!”
Holy crap, you gotta be kidding me. Speaking about his squad’s big 3-1 win over the New York Rangers on Thursday, Florida Panthers head coach Kevin Dineen busted out a dated reference for the ages. So egregious, in fact, that we are left to wonder if something so traumatic occurred to him in the late ’90s that it permanently damaged his...
