Inside this edition of the Jetstream;
Featured interview with Ed Staniowski, acquired in summer trade along with Paul McLean and Bryan Maxwell (Scott Campbell was involved going the other way). At the time Paul McLean was thought of as a throw-in.
Ed started playing goal like many others because he wanted to play with his older brothers but couldn't skate at their level because of his age.
