I just kept thinking, "They're playing without helmets." That's how they did it when I was a kid, but it still jars me to go back and watch.
As Gordie said when asked why he wore a cup but not a helmet, "You can always pay someone to do your thinking."
Watching the goalies was cool too. The difference in technique and style takes me back as well.
Thanks for posting this.
Is it just me, or did they mis-identify someone else as Delvecchio in one spot in the first clip? Maybe I was watching the wrong person.
Money on the board: Current total: 0
$1 for a goal by any current Wing after whom I have named a hamster. An additional $5 for a series-clinching goal scored by any current Wing after whom I have named a hamster. $5 if the other team fails to score against a current Wing goalie after whom I have named a hamster.
Hamsters I have had: (current Wings highlighted)
Henrik Pavel Tomas Nicklas Dominik
Niklas Matthew Daniel Robert
Johan Andreas Valtteri Jonathan
Andrew Patrick Ian Todd
Jordin Damien Gustav James
