#2677417 Gordie Howe has passed away. 1928-2016.

20 straight seasons finishing top five in scoring.  How ridiculous is that?  The longevity and good health required for that, together with playing at a high level.

It's days like today when you feel weird being away from home. Gordie meant so much to us in Detroit and the hockey world. He was a hero some of our parents grew up with and legend to us kids. When we'd see him at an event or at a rink, you knew you were in the presence of pure, bonafide greatness. The hockey world won't be the same, but we won't forget.

Must see! Don Cherry and Ron McLean talk about Gordie and Grapes tells a hilarious story about the first thing Gordie ever said to him...

Thanks, I had checked Don's twitter earlier and didn't see anything. I missed this! 

 

By the way, anyone think that the Wings should offer to let Gordie lie in state at the Joe for a bit like the Habs have done before with some of their greats? I'm remembering they did that with Beliveau just a couple years ago, seems like they did it with Rocket Richard as well.

My condolences to Wings fans and the Wings organization on such a huge loss.

 

Rest in Peace, Mr. Hockey.

"I pick Gordie as my No. 1 all-time player. He played the longest. He was the toughest player of his era. He was the best offensive player and defensively. He was used in all situations. He could play center, right wing, and defense. He could shoot right and he could shoot left. If you could make a mold for a hockey player it would be him. I never thought there was another player close to him.

Would the Stars give us anything for Howard?

I heard about this.  Too bad the teams playings are the Sabres and Canes.  Why couldn't have been the Wings and another team?

He screwed the pooch on the only goal scored. Like was said, of Howard had made that play he'd be the Anti-Christ

 

This series had nothing to do with the goaltenders.

My 8 year old daughter skates and works harder in her hockey games in comparison to Z!


Blame the coaches who still force him into roles that he physically cannot handle anymore. They treat Z like a first line center. His decline is only more noticeable like Kronwall's because they both play way too much.

No matter how bad things get. No matter how dark the night. No matter if we all go down fighting tonight.

 

It still can't be as bad as Patrick Kane's hair.
