Bobby Hull may be the most exciting player to ever play the game. He was electryfying. He had one of (if not the) hardest and most accurate shots ever plus he was lighning fast. His slap shot was Wicked. His shot was so hard, it scared goalies. He was famous for his length of the ice rushes, he would take the puck from behind the net and rush the lenngth of the ice and score. That is how he earned his nickname the Golden Jet. The stadium would be on its feet once he took the puck in this situations. And it was before helmets, he looke dcool with his long blond hair flying all over the place. Players were more identifiable without the helmets.

It was a devistating day in Chicago when he left the Hawks for the WHL. Took them decades to recover.
