You are only allowed to pick one per row... Keith and Ovi are on the same row.

My initial thought was: Gretzky, Ovi, Howe, Lidstrom, Orr, and Roy

Not really, since it mostly tryouts for the younger players to possibly make the team.

But is it Richard of Martin?

BTW, Gordie Howe scored more goals than Gretzky...

Not sure if this belongs here or in the Entertainment thread.

Just finished watching the last episode in the Summit 72 series https://gem.cbc.ca/media/summit-72/s01. Really enjoyed this, brought back some memories (although I was just a child but it was when I started to love hockey and I do remember my Dad let me stay home from school to watch). Also included lots of things I didn't know or maybe forgot. Phil Esposito was quite the character. Good documentary :130:

That was an amazing series. It brought the entire country together like never before.
I was one of the fortunate ones who had tickets to the Vancouver game. And Phil, you're welcome. :biggrin:

I recall reading in the paper a few days later that those working for the city of Vancouver noticed a huge drop in water usage during the play, and a huge increase in water usage as well as sewage during the intermissions. That kept getting larger as the series progressed.

Btw, just bought a book of postage stamps dedicated to that series.

My dad was hitchhiking around the US, and couldn't find a single spot showing the games so didn't get to watch.

So who is your team and how do you feel about them going into the regular season?

I’ve been fan of hockey since a young kid, as for a team I’ve followed the Canucks since there days as a WHL team.

Due to the Leagues BS offer to former players with definite concussion issues a number of years back, I have stepped back. I do comment on things occasionally.

btw Gary Bettman will hopefully drop dead soon, because he is unwilling to move the Arizona team to Quebec City. Quebec City would have sellouts to all games, plus City built a arena.

I guess the big wigs see Arizona as a new market whereas Quebec is viewed as the same market as Montreal.

Have you seen were there are playing games in Arizona, the building isn’t much bigger then our old Memorial arena with capacity of under 5,000 (Mullett Arena).
It’s a :swear: joke, meanwhile there is 17,000+ arena in Quebec City.

btw Bell Centre is largest capacity arena in NHL just over 21,000. Very rare to see many empty seats.
