There are a couple of new Q&A articles at canadiens.com to commemorate #12. Twelve questions were posed each to Dickie Moore and Yvan Cournoyer.
The Roadrunner, on Leafs Fans:
"Even to this day, Toronto fans are just too much. I’m telling you, the Maple Leafs must lead the league in Stanley Cups won before the season even starts!"
Both players have glowing reviews of the new NHL game.
"I think it’s fantastic. It’s added so much life to the game. It’s great for not only the fans, but for the players too. You can see on their faces that everyone is energized and it really shows on the ice. I mean it’s end-to-end action, you’d think it was the playoffs even though it's only November."
"It’s just terrific. To be brutally honest, I had trouble sitting though three whole periods in recent years, but now when the games are over, I wish there was a fourth period. You already see a change happening where if you can’t skate, you won’t be able to keep up and you won’t be in the NHL for long. That’s how it should be."
Personally, I hold these players' opinions in higher regard than that of Tiger Williams or other curmudgeons who weren't talented enough to score.
Finally, original material like this is why I read hockey blogs.
