Not sure where this places in a Habs forum... but this is pretty awesome hockey history...

A classic 1974 Wayne Gretzky radio interview at 13 years of age.


Apparently when he used to play in tournaments in Quebec, hockey fans here would reach into his team bench and steal his sticks during games because they knew he was going to be huge one day.

Imagine the Habs drafting a phenom like that?

How the **** is Don Cherry on that list? I imagine even #99 would feel uncomfortable being there next to Terry Fox.

I think that thread should rather go to the "History of hockey" board.

Some players mature quickly and develop pretty good speed for kids at age 7-8, so I wouldn't be surprised if a lot more people had 1000 goals or more by then.

Even in my crappy town there was one kid who averaged around 80 goals a year for a while.


That's him.
