Enjoyed Sherbrooke W's posts and agree on all fronts.

The management had a real knack of finding good players to keep it going, Larouche, Mondou really stepped up.

Some of the teams we played back then, Detroit, Washington, were hopeless. When your team is good it sometimes seems like we're winning just because the opposition is really weak.

Dryden's book has some good descriptions from inside the locker room, how they'd be really vigilant in discouraging joking around in the locker room when they were playing hopeless teams.

You'd often hear people criticize Dryden, saying he wasn't such a great goalie, and that Bunny Larocque should get more ice time, at least that's what my old friend Pierre Fortin would always say and I'm thinking he got it from the Journal de Montreal, Jacques Beauchamp or something.
