I watched the occasional game from 98-02 but like yourself, the first round playoff series in 2002 was the first time I began watching hockey regularly. Ever since I've missed all of eight games.

HF's demographic is the 15-25 year old age group. We have some people in their tweens and a few ancients (Wally and Klingsor. But most fall into the 15-25 gap.

Let's hope so, whenever I imagine hockey fans.. I see 2-12 year olds, and their grandparents.. Like Bob McKenzie, Pierre McGuire.. and the old people on t.v.

Yeah, thats about it.

Yessir, sonny. It was 19 and 67. There I was on the front porch as usual, whittlin', drinking me a sarsparilla, and I said to my great-grandson (who was graduating from university that year), "That Chief, you got to remember his empty-netter, because it may be a long time until you get to live this moment again." He laughed.

More's the pity. You'll never see a guy with more heart then Gilmour.
Every playoff game it was like he was determined to give his life in an effort to singlehandedly drag Toronto to a victory.

There was magic in his game, especially those two great years. It was a wonderful and inspiring time and it gave a hockey fan, especially a long-suffering Leaf fan, a sense of well being to be in the presence of his greatness.

Thanks for the memories, Killer.

I wish I could have seen Borje Salming in the early 80's...

Salming was Fantastic to watch .. No one in today's NHL even comes close to comparing to him in style and ability ..

You youngsters all missed so much of the Leafs history so many GREAT players ..

It actually strange to hear someone not even seeing Dougie play ..never mind Wendel Clark or Darryl Sittler or Lanny MacDonald or Salming or Davey Keon or Frank Mahovlich or Tim Horton etc etc ..

I guess that is one of the benefits of being older and have been given the chance to see how the game has changed over the years and a chace to witness all the Leaf lengends that have worn the Blue and White and all the great memories ..

Ah, I did catch a bit of Clark in the '01 playoffs. Alas he was definitely not the Clark of the early nineties but I did at least see him play.
