I'm new here so I don't want to rock the boat, but I've been a poster on a boxing forum for years and I've seen the same posts over and over again that incessantly harp on "nostalgia" whenever someone mentions a retired player being better than an active player. It's very frustrating to deal with and it seems to come from an ingrained ideology or world view that can't be shaken no matter how much logic and evidence you give. The vast majority of those posters seem to have a common denominator that their world view emanates from.

That's not exactly a Dark horse. Most people consider him to be top 3 all time defensively, and if they don't, they should
It struck me. I've been watching a good bit of Habs' games from the mid to late '70s and struck me how good a defender Savard really was. I was fortunate enough to be able to see Langway and Borque in the '80s but la Dynastie was before my watching time so I'm now taking advantage of the internet to see what I missed
Nice avi of the REAL Barnabus Collins btw
