You guys really missed out when you were growing up watching hockey.
Ya I was pretty young for the weight years, although I remember the Carter-Weight-Guerin days, Smyth is definitely the first star in oil silks that I really remember. Now that I think of it.... It's kind of sad. I also feel sad cause I know a lot of older guys like my dad are holding our current you guns up to standards of the greatest hockey players of all time..... This team seems so close right now to succeeding, yet so far away.
