OT: Boom Boom Geoffrion

RIP BOOM BOOM
http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/news_story/?ID=158150&hubname=

"And after two final seasons marked by knee injuries, Geoffrion was asked by owner David Molson to retire and accept a two-year stint as coach of the Canadiens top farm club, the Quebec Aces.

After guiding the Aces to pair of first-place finishes, he was told there was no room as coach in Montreal because the legendary Toe Blake was still running the team and he was offered a job coaching the Montreal junior Canadiens, which he considered a demotion.

Geoffrion said later he suspected the coaching jobs were a ruse to get him out of the way so they could bring up junior sensation Yvan Cournoyer. He opted to return as a player with the Rangers."

People ... don't hold 35+ year old grudges ... its not good business

Isn't his grandson a pretty good hockey player? Maybe in the draft?

Boom Boom is a legend in Canada, his player days are before my times but my dad thought the highest of him as a classy and hard working player.

Watching his grandchildren showing emotion last night in Montreal, he will be missed!

I would be shocked if we didn't use our second round pick on Blake Geoffrion, simply for the "local product" factor.

I was thinking the same thing. Even if we are taking him a little high in the draft. It's just something that would be very special for hockey in TN.
