    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: Are you old enough? 1979 and the mystic of the call! : Agree,  I can't believe this team has to rely on Lucic to hit. Yes Staurt laid some hits and so did Begin but it was on useless players like Laraque. Very nice reading all your stories guys .  One last question ; Don Cherry has mentioned on more than one occasion that G Gilbert hated his guts ,  can anyone share some insight ?

    If you like to read and enjoy hockey, I recommend you try to find a copy of Don Cherry's autobiography "Grapes". I read this years ago, it is outstanding. Cherry played minor league hockey and one of his coaches was Eddie Shore , who he refers to as "the old man". Many of Cherry's coaching techniques were learned by being a student of "the old man" , Shore was said to have been the toughest S.O.B. that ever played the game. He reportedly used to tie goalies to the crossbar in an effort to keep them standing up...he would've strangled Tim Thomas in the first practice!!!

    Agree Zilla, i must of read that book about 20 years ago. It was really good, it had lot of entertaining stories in it. In fact maybe because i'm a huge hockey fan, it was one of the most enyoyable autobios i've read.

    I was 14 and playoff hockey was about the only thing we were allowed to see on TV in boarding school. What a gut wrenching series it was. It still feels good 30 years later. As Bruins fans, you can order it with the Habs' DVD collection if you aspire to a higher order of Zen buddhism.
