"Infernally long" season. Love that. What would Red say now that hockey goes to the end of June, not May?
I remember everytime he'd come on Hockey Night in Canada he was usually a bit cantankerous, prickly, feisty. Just slightly a "homer" when it came to the Habs... his name as well, Red Fisher. Well, in Ontario, we had our own Red Fisher. The iconic Mother of All Fishing Shows, the Red Fisher Show from Scuttlebutt Lodge. Ran from like 68-89, Saturday afternoons on CTV out of Toronto. Red off fishin with Gordie Howe, Johnny Bower, Eddie Shack & Red Berenson amongst others to some remote fly-in lake up in Northern Saskatchewan or wherever. Terrific show. Was always getting those two guys confused.
Kjell Dahlin has to have one of the greatest flame outs of all time--talk about a one hit wonder. From 71pts to 20 pts to 25pts to out of the league
Not even one hit. If I remember, he flamed out soon after Xmas. Pretty much a no-show the rest of the season. Really slight guy with no strength. Kind of like a pitcher who mows down everyone the first time around the league. Second time around, he's watching the 3rd through 9th innings on TV after a shower.
