I just remember the 1971 season held unbelievable expectations for Lafleur, to almost immediately make an impact in the NHL after scoring 130 goals in last junior year.
That placed an tremendous burden and attention on a young kid. In all my years, Lafleur probably had more expectations than any player in first year.
