I hope Blake knows that none of us expect him to be his grandfather. But his last name is synonymous with Habs "royalty", and we'll be cheering him on from the second he steps on the Bell Centre ice. Welcome back to your home away from home. All the best of luck.
My memory could be off here, but didn't he die the day of the jersey retirement?
