This is a story from Denis Potvin's Legends of Hockey. His first NHL game against the Atlanta Flames, he arrives in Atlanta, and has the wrong coloured helmet. Despite everything he had learned about protecting yourself first, he was the rookie who wouldn't want to speak up, he played his first period in the NHL without his helmet, scared to death. Stan Fischler: "If it was up to Denis Potvin, he would've done exactly what bobby orr did, and that was spending his entire playing lifetime in the other end of the rink going for goals, setting up goals. Denis Potvin would've been to Mike Bossy and Bryan Trottier what Bobby Orr was to Phil Esposito and Kenny Hodge. There was one major difference: Al Arbour. It was the irresistable force versus the immovable object. Al Arbour would not move, so the irresistable force moved just enough to the right and it was a happy blend. Denis Potvin becomes a hall of famer, and not like bobby orr, Potvin played in his own end." Pretty interesting summation. So someone else tell me a story about hockey from the good old days.
