Ask an astute hockey fan who Gerry Meehan is, and his very respectable NHL career would be discussed: 10 seasons (1968-79), 670 games, 423 points. Meehan had a career-high 31 goals in 1972-73, a career-high 64 points in 1976-77.
Meehan was also a lawyer, and worked in Buffalo's front office from 1984-94. Meehan did stints as general manager and executive vice president.
Ask Penguins fans from the early '70s who Meehan is, and their eyes would light up.
