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: $7
$1 for each goal scored by a current Wing after whom I've named a hamster. +$5 if one scores a hat trick.
+$1 if a GWG. +$5 if it is a GWG in a series-winning game.+$50 if it is the GWG that wins us the Cup.
$5 for each time a goalie after whom I've named a hamster prevents all opposing shots from going in the net.
The hamsters names are as follows (current Wings in red)
Henrik Pavel Tomas Nicklas Dominik
Niklas Matthieu Daniel Robert
Johan Andreas Valtteri Jonathan
Andrew (Drew) Patrick Ian Todd
Jordin Damien Gustav James
