According to Steve Silver, of the Las Vegas Sun, Keith Primeau is "one of the most decorated players in NHL history." Only in Vegas! Apparently, we've missed a few issues of The Hockey News between 1990 and 2006.
You would think that this is just a lazy journalistic job where the bold statement came straight from the Las Vegas Wranglers' press release announcing Primeau's nomination as Special Assistant to the General Manager / Director of Player Development of the ECHL team. After all, press releases from minor league pro hockey teams are notorious for their hype. But no!
Maybe it was just copied-and-pasted from Primeau's page on Wikipedia? You know, a Wikipedia contributor - Primeau's wife? - could have hyped the profile and Mr. Silver simply taken the statement from there. We all have deadlines. But no!
Keith Primeau: one of the most decorated players in NHL history. Really?!
