OT: Met Frank Mahovlich tonight

So I get to work tonight and the guys are telling me that Frank Mahovlich is in the quiet lounge of the bar sitting back with a few others and having a couple drinks.
I decide to get his autograph and wait a while when he doesn't seem so busy as I don't want to disturb him. I finally get my chance and ask him to sign my cap, really nice fellow, wore his '67 Leafs ring and '73 Habs ring.
Chatted for a second and said he liked this years Habs and says that they're a good team, likes my cap and asks where I got it, a smile came to his face as I tell him about my dads stories of the '70s Habs team cups. Than tells me that they're on the other side for karaoke night and I inform him that I'm working the dance side playing tunes.
He got up to sing, but I was too late to catch the performance.

So I got a guy to do his first post and have a post of the century nomination, that's a good evening on the board.

Frank Mahovlich was probably the laziest player to ever lace skates, but wow, he knew how to put the puck in the net. I swear that if a player passed him the puck and he had to reach an extra inch to get it on his stick, he would give the player a dirty look as if to say, " where did you learn to pass the puck?" But yes, overall he was one of the greats.

I was a great fan of Frank when i was like 13-14 yrs old. All i remember of him was his long skating stride and his ridiculously fast slapshot from about 3 feet in from the blue line that would go in the net 50% of the time..

Awesome story JS, and that is a cool cap. It kind of looks pink though, not that there's anything wrong with that.

Yeah, I really liked that cap and it fit really well, now I can't wear it
Oh well, gives me a new reason to get another Habs cap.

Frank Mahovlich was a hell of a hockey player. Sam Pollock knew how to get the most out of him. In '71 he was the best player in the playoffs. When he played here he was either the 2 or 3rd best player in the league, mostly because of Polloch prodding him. Very similar to Jagr in how he played. When he was hot...look out. He played on a line with Coco and the Roadrunner. The French Connection line got all the fame back then but that line was just as good.
