I was like a kid in a candy store scanning through these. Reading original reports/articles/columns on the formation of the WHA, Bobby Hull signing with Winnipeg, Bobby Orr's rookie season, expansion, Jacques Plante's injury which of course lead to him wearing the mask, Terry Sawchuk breaking the record for all-time shutouts, Rocket Richard retiring, the Summit Series etc.. etc..
Just really cool stuff. Only negative is that it appears I'm running out of room.
Looking forward to your contributions with the new material
BTW - If you ran a blog with highlights from old THN issues, I'd subscribe to it and I'd check it every day.
