Milt Schmidt - 95!

Just saw Brick tweet that today is Milt Schmidt's 95th birthday! and thought we could use a pleasant diversion. Let's all bake a cake for this seminal Bruin (player, coach, GM, President!) and remember a time when Habs fans and Bruins fans agreed on something:

Quote:
On February 11, 1942 -- the final game before the Kitchener trio was to depart to serve Canada -- the Bruins spanked Montreal 8-1, and Schmidt, Bauer and Dumart earned 22 points between them. In tribute to the respect the trio had earned not just as hockey players but as proud Canadians, Bobby Bauer, Woody Dumart and Milt Schmidt received an emotional send-off at the Boston Gardens. "Much to their credit in spite of how tough we were playing against one another, after the game was over, both Montreal and Boston players hoisted us on their shoulders and carried us off the ice. The ovation from the crowd was fantastic," reminisces Schmidt, pausing to savour the moment. "It just goes to show that you can have pretty bitter enemies out on that ice, but after the game is over, we're all friends, and I think that has a lot to say about the people who play the game."

an awesome moment of the 2011 SCF's game 6 (i think) was when he waved the flag.

Happy Birthday to the ultimate bruin, who's picture is hanging on my wall downstairs!

As a plug for my GDT for tonights game, there is a little bit of a story about Milt in there. Didn't even know it was his B'day.

I shook his hand about a year ago and he still has an incredible grip. My niece works in the place where he lives and sees him all the time. She even asked him what a good name would be for my son when my wife and I were stuck on names, and we ended up using his suggestion. Tyler

Happy birthday Milt!

Certainly the classiest.

Exactly how I described him to my wife. Pesky was a legend with the Red Sox, but Mr. Schmidt is a legend of hockey.

Happy birthday, sir, and many more, to a true living legend
