Those are sad news. Thanks for posting this very nice article about a Hall of Fame Legend. I remember his such a productive play since 70-ies. His 50+goals/per season 6 seasons in a row were so impressing for me. Fantastic player!

I became a Hockey fan when the Wings were in the middle of their Infamous Dead Things era, I remember the Habs Dynasty with love and respect, Flower flying down the ice with his famous hair flowing behind looking like god himself could not catch him on a breakaway. RIP to a Legend. First Bossy now Flower, I think I am going back to bed now.

Before it was Bossy, now Lafleur, series' law sucks. In fact, he definitively retired as a North Star where he was a member of the organization for about 24 hours after the 1991 expansion draft that followed the San José dispersal draft.

 

A Modano-Lafleur-Bellows line, that could've been fun...

Very sad news. A true legend of hockey and only 70 years old.  Like Mike Bossy, I never got to enjoy seeing him play a game live. When Lafleur decided to return to the NHL I was born, but only a baby and not watching hockey. Watching videos of these legends has been such a pleasure.

Always sad to lose our heroes way too soon. Cigarettes are bad. 

Yeah those guys would smoke between periods too. Wasn’t Bossy a heavy smoker too?  I quit those bastards 7 years ago. Best thing I ever did

When my youngest was a peewee, we got a chance to attend a Canadiens  optional practice.   No coaches on the ice.   Players were free to practice whatever they wanted.  Despite his reputation as an undisciplined free spirit, Lafleur pushed himself hard.  

 

I think my son learned a lesson that day.  Success requires hard work.  

 

 

 

Yay...a blocker story.

 

This forum needs more of these!

Hey!  I haven't seen you in awhile. It's really refreshing to see your post.  Hope you're doing well. This site needs more of you.

 

Don't be a stranger.

I just watched that again...les Habitants took all the advertising off the boards and just had Guy Lafleur, 10, and 1951-2022 on there. Impressive.
