In the last week the NHL lost 2 of their greatest players.
Mike Bossy who was the greatest pure goal scorer in the game, he started his career with 9 straight 50 goal seasons and scored 38 in 63 games in his 10th season and retired due to a knee injury.
Guy LaFleur…he was my very 1st sports idol. I grew up a huge Montreal Canadien fan and Guy was the best player in the world at the time. All Guy did in his career was win 5 championships, 2 MVPs, 3 scoring titles, played on the greatest dynasty ever.
Both died to young and both died of lung cancer.
guy Lafleur use to smoke between periods…
This is probably the greatest goal LaFleur ever scored. Game 7 of the 79 semi final down by 1, LaFleur ties it and Montreal wins in OT and then went on to win the cup…
Sunday night in Montreal. A 10 minute standing O for the flower.
