again, that interviewer is a moron, but very funny to read.
Moron indeed but so funny to read.
"Guy-o-tine" would fit for a tough defensement such as McLaren or McSorley, trying to cut the head of a forward entering his own end. Not the kind of play Lafleur was doing. Lafleur was successful making finesse and fast plays, which americans don't seem to understand or appreciate. They like a different hockey I guess. So Lafleur was a beauty to watch (like a flower), such finesse and beautyfull play, “The Flower” fits pretty well I have no problem with that. Americans can say it's *** as a nickname I don't care. I saw lot of games with The Flower, saw him live at the Forum, lot of great memories, most spectaculor player ever, most exciting to watch, what else can be said?
Flower Power rules !!
