Not your typical photo for a hockey card.
I can't imagine 6'4, 200 lbs. Ken Dryden being any worse for wear when checked by opposing forwards.
As a huge Bure fan when he was in Vancouver, I'm surprised I hadn't seen this one before.
Look at who has the best seats in the house!
Can you imagine players would be mere spectators in an Original-Six Era fight by the benches?

Who says you need rubles to play the greatest game on earth?
I've seen the video of this incredible play many times, but this is the first time I've seen this still photograph of Gabbie in the air after Hasek surprisingly rushed out and took him out below.

Excellent Robert Gordon Orr!
Eddie Shack doing one of his pirouettes after a three star selection in his 70's Leaf stint! He truly was an entertainer, loved Eddie!
Glen Sonmor probably drunk and combative in that picture? Though when wasn't he? Wore heavy cologne to try and mask it. Great coach who'sdrinking got in the way...
Montreal had a mid to late seventies (and beyond) dynasty; and with three Norris caliber defenseman on their blue line it wasn't hard to see why...

Minor footnote of a correction, but he played 26 games for the Minnesota North Stars in 1989-90, at 37 years old.
Now let's not nitpick like the kids do in some of the other threads Johnny!!
Not very productive in those games, was he? Man, I'd have loved to see some of those Czech and especially Soviet player in The NHL in their
Concerning the photo of Eddie and Bobby together, I always remember Don Cherry discussing among Bobby's odd idiosyncrasies was the way he wore his skates in that he went barefoot and laced them on so loosely that he practically could have shaken them off his feet. All of this done for that better sense of feel. And the only other man Grapes ever saw do this with their skates was Eddie Shore, who of course ran the Springfield Indians when he, Don, was a young defenceman in the AHL for that team. Both Bobby and Eddie were the two best skaters Don says he ever saw in person.

Reardon said: “This fan stood up on top of the boards and grabbed me around the neck while I was carrying the puck. I hit him on the head when he spun me around. I hit him accidently, but the fan had no business tackling me while I was in action.”
Grbich ended up getting several stitches in his forehead and a big patch on his head. He eventually pressed charges. Reardon and teammates Leo Gravelle and Billy Reay were charged with using their sticks as “deadly weapons.” and were briefly jailed.

Has Jacques Lemaire ever had hair?
Oddly, when he was a baby.... stress of Kindergarten... Grade School.... Jr. High, not much left.
