    I've met two of Joey's sisters, his brother Stephen (who passed away in 2019) and a couple nieces/nephews and can say that they are incredible people. Warm, welcoming, funny, caring, genuine... very special people, just like Joey. My heart aches for the entire Moss family

    Delete if this is considered political, but my MP gave what I thought was a great tribute to Joey in the House of Commons yesterday. What a great man and a great life, may he Rest In Peace.

    Do we think they honor him the night of the first game this coming season?

    Seems like the right way to do it.

    Sam Gagner in the running as the nicest Oilers player ever. I loved his attitude, his joy in life, his approach to things, always facing the world with a smile. Love people like that.

    In the case of both Joey and Sam they were both like this. The world could use more of this kind of joy.

    But thats why I featured the whole Moss family earlier. Here we had a family that saw it as their purpose in life to make others happy, to make others laugh, have enjoyment, and they all raised Joey Moss, a bundle of packaged joy.

    What a great heartfelt tribute by Gagner, a great guy who should have been able to retire as an Oiler

    BOTH

    When I follow pro sports, and cheer for teams I want the people on those teams to have the erstwhile kindness, grace, humility, class of people like Sam Gagner. Which always made it easy being in his corner all the time.

    One of the most likeable pro athletes to play here. he got a lot of scorn here on this board, and never should have.

    That was really well done by Gagner. I knew they were close, but I didn't know how close. It doesn't really surprise me though, given the character of Gagner. What a great person Gagner is by all accounts. I still proudly wear my signed Gagner jersey, and I always will.

    You kind of get an idea of how special of a guy Joey was when 4th line European fringe NHL'ers like Lenny Petrell, who only had a cup of coffee in the league, are making comments like that in paying tribute to Joey. He truly touched all the players in that room.

    Came across this mid-eighty's PSA with Gretz and Joey which is of course dated. Their friendship really shines through:

    He got scorn for his play on the ice, not who he is as a person.

    Hi folks, living half a world away I just read the sad news. Sorry to hear about Joey's passing. Even though I'm a Leafs fan, I've known about Joey for years, the wonderful relationship that existed between him and the players, and your entire community. You were lucky to share a heartwarming experience that made things better for all involved. RIP Joey.

    As a 50 year old I grew up with the Oilers. I had no idea how special the 80s team was. It was magical. I remember well the commercial where Gretzky and Joey extolled the virtues of inclusion - something we take for granted now. I have a hard time remembering what I need to follow up on from work today. But I remember May 19, 1984 vividly. I watched Gretzky’s remembrance yesterday and man did I wish I could be 14 again now that I know how brief it all would be.

    to be honest I was upset we traded him twice.

    I liked him as an Oiler.

    Let's be honest here.

    He's a very nice guy no doubt but player wise yawn.
