I like that comparison! McPhee was a tremendous skater with size and grit.

(edit) except I hope MaxPax turns in more than 40pts a year!

Yes, defense can be taught, but not Gainey quality defense. It's not reasonable to say that any young player with wheels and size can be a Gainey.

I'm still pretty attached to the Patches/Shane Corson comp.

That was Tikhonov, not Tarasov. Still, I can't believe that never caught on.

You realize that Thichnov declared Gainey the greatest all round hockey player. I think it was during the 76 Canada Cup.

Wow and i guess that phrase "best technical" leaves room for this useless speculation that MaxPac is another Gainey.

And it was the best ALL ROUND hockey player by the way. just because you wrote it a few posts back don't make it so bud. You also thought it was Tretiak a few post back. maybe if you post a few more, you'll think Bure was Gainey's secret lover.


excerpt from the wikipedia on Bob Gainey:
"...Bob Gainey was described as the world's best all-around player by legendary Soviet national team coach Anatoli Tarasov."

"Bud" what an arrogant word to use during a conversation.

lmao at wikippi, anyone can write whatever they would like there.

here is the real quote .

http://habslegends.blogspot.com/2007/04/bob-gainey.html

Bob Gainey was a key member of Team Canada during the 1976 and 1981 Canada Cup tournaments. He also impressed during exhibition games between Montreal and the touring Soviet clubs. Red Army and Soviet National Team coach Viktor Tikhonov described him as technically the world's best player.

just in case you want to keep this going by saying the blog is wrong !!

Maxpac = Bill Guerin with hopefully better luck on the injury side of things and a better career start.
