All-Star Games 1980 and 83

Just thought I'd pass it along to the History buffs — The NHL Network is airing the 1980 and 1983 ASGs tonight —

If you didn't get to watch these Hall of Famers in their day, it's a good chance to see a bunch of them in one game.

1980 is the year Wayne and Gordie both played — and they gave Gordie a ten-minute standing ovation in Detroit where the game is played.
Wayne 19 years old and his first NHL ASG
Gordie 53 years old, in his 23rd ASG ! !

also including Tony and Phil Esposito, Guy Lafleur, Reggie Leach, Gil Perreault, Ratelle, Dionne, Gainey . . .

1983 was Gretz's four-goals-in-one-period game.

also including Lafleur, Mess, my namesake and Darryl Sittler, Denis Savard, Trots-&-Bossy, Potvin and Robinson and Bourque, 2 Stasneys . . .

they're going to repeat both games in the overnight.

I'm gonna call that it's only on NHLN Canada. We get On the Fly and nothing more. Hang on... nope, only in Canada.

Sorry to hear that.

They just interviewed, by chance, a young U.S. Olympic team coach Herb Brooks, just a few days before the unexpected Miracle on Ice history would be made.

and it's so weird seeing the super-young Wayne, 19 and 2 weeks old first year in the NHL and they're still talking about him as a young kid with potential.

Haha, if you're challenging for the scoring title it goes without saying you've got some potential.

As John Garrett makes sure to point out everytime he is part of a Canucks broadcast, he would have won the MVP award had Gretzky not scored those 4 goals.

Listening to Gretzky after that game sounds a lot like Crosby today, right down to their voice.
