I had the pleasure of meeting the man outside Maple Leaf Gardens back in the 80's as a child and I'll never forget how he took the time to talk to me and shake my hand. You can't imagine what that meant to me as a boy growing up and getting the chance to meet someone I truly idolized. He's pure class and I hope to run into to him again some day so that I may introduce my son to not only a true legend of the game, but a gentleman as well.
His brother Stig is the real Salming Him and Börje use to fight in practice back in the day when they both ruled Brynäs!
