Read: When Glen Sather Stuck It To The Flames

In the 1980′s the Edmonton Oilers and Calgary Flames played four times in the playoffs with the Oilers winning three times.

In 1986 though, after the Flames defeated the Oilers in the playoffs, Glen Sather got some revenge on the Flames by making a move at the draft.

Sather told Jason Farris in Behind The Moves:

“[Edmonton] had a rivalry with Calgary for years, and we never made any deals [with them]. I heard they were going to pick a Scottish player, Tony Hand, in the last pick of the draft, and I knew it because our scouts had been talking to their scouts. We ended up picking him one pick ahead of Calgary just to piss them off.”

Sather also stuck it to the Flames when he traded Ales Kotalik and Christopher Higgins for Brandon Prust and Olli Jokinen.
