Theres another interesting bunch of links.... Irvin doesnt even play in the NHL until the age of 34. That certainly puts things into perspective for anyone who might think the NHL was in its infancy & indeed at various times right through the 30's "the best league in the World". Numerous teams from various leagues couldve given the Leafs or any one one of em a run for their money. Note as well that even then, Irvin was complaining that "todays players are over-coached", that perhaps players shouldnt be coached at all, as he'd come up through an age when Coaching was indeed absolutely minimal, the Great Knute Rockne' with football of course giving rise to a far more pro-active, motivational, inspirational & regimented approach to sport which of course transcended the field, inspiring guys like Irvin, who in turn inspired those who played for him in becoming Coaches themselves & so on.

Show me a good & gracious loser, and I'll show you a failure.
Knute Rockne
