21 seasons, four Stanley Cups as a member of the dynasty Maple Leafs of the 60s.

Very underrated. A pleasure to watch. Thank you for the memories.

Yes he certainly was a pleasure to watch, he & Horton playing together for 10yrs. Very solid, reliable, giving direction to his nearly blind defensive partner. Actually started out as a Center however early moved to the blue line as he was always somewhat limited in his skating abilities. Nicknamed Snowshoes as a result.... what a team, what a tandem in Horton & Stanley. Seems like yesterday then "poof".

Kind of miffed that Martin Biron retiring is bigger news than this...

I'm sorry to hear that. I managed to catch the last five years of the six team NHL so I remember Allan Stanley and the great Toronto-Montreal rivalry of the 1960's very well. Even after all these years all of the NHL players of that era, even the fellows who only played a season or less, are still heroes to me. It was a great time to be a kid and a hockey fan.

It sure would be fun to be able to be ten years old again sitting in front of the tv back in the 60's watching a game on a Saturday night for just one night.

True but unless you're a student of the game or at least in your mid 50's you probably have no idea who Allan Stanley was or how good a player he was.
