Mike, Tommy and Kevin take a deep dive into Mighty  Ducks training camp in D2 and have plenty of questions for Gordon Bombay. Why didn’t he know who any of his new players were? Why did he create an instant rift amongst the old Ducks and new Ducks?

Show Notes

The first date of that we have on a USA TODAY paper is after the U.S. beats Trinidad and Tobago. The date: March 1, 1994. Mike was way off. They would’ve all still been in school.

Here’s the new players showing off to the waiting Ducks.

    You were wondering if there was an apology by Banks sometime after the dinner that might have happened off-screen.

    My thoughts: Most probably. Plus, something big happened sometime after that dinner – Hans died. That definitely brought them all together. Even Charlie was at the funeral, even though he was off to the side while the rest of the Ducks were pretty much standing together, and he walked off afterwards…
    Anyway, back to Banks… he was with the rest of the Ducks at that street game they had that Bombay brought Charlie to, if I remember correctly. So apparently, Banks had already reconciled with them at that point.
