Oh gosh, I didnt mind this at all. Like a Guinness Book of Records type dealeo. To be taken with a grain of salt. Like George Plimpton donning the pads & playing goal with the Bruins or whatever. Just a unique but altogether meaningless record which one could argue merely underscored Howe's real record in coming out of retirement, playing with his kids through the WHA years, returning to the NHL with Hartford, playing one final season at 51 scoring 15 goals & helping his team make the Playoffs. That makes five decades of professional hockey as a player, six if we include the publicity stunt but no one, including Howe himself would consider that realsy Im sure...
