    I remember fall of 72 or 73 first year of pee wee hockey that's who the coaches referred to a lot... He was the gold standard as well.
    Go that way really REALLY fast. If something gets in your way, TURN!

    I always thought of him when I watched slapshot. Not the Hanson brothers
    The coach. Washed up and beat up. Toothless but scrappy.

    As a kid he and Bobby Orr were the best of the best. Loved watching them do the ice dance.

    RIP

    As a Wings fan I was never a fan of Bobby. But Brett helped us win a Stanley Cup, so thanks for that Bobby.

    Being an asshole is requirement number one to play in the NHL. In fact, every team has at least one player for whom that is the only requirement.

    Seriously. While I didn't know him personally, or anything about his personal life, he was a hockey idol of mine. I put him right along side of Bobby Orr, Maurice Richard, Brad Gilbert, Dennis Potion and Guy LaFleur

    I guess you're being sarcastic? But either way, if someone was good at something, do you think that's the only thing that should be discussed when they die?

    I actually wasn't being sarcastic. If a guy is a piece of shit, I don't think he should be glorified when he dies, but that's often what happens.

    I had a brief interaction with Michelle Hull on Tinder 5 years ago. Never hooked up but she said her childhood was interesting.
