Canadiens legend Henri Richard dies at 84 | CBC Sports
So sad to hear this. Condolences to all his fans and family.
For many years, he owned a tavern on Park Avenue near Sherbrooke in Montreal, in the heart of the McGill student ghetto. Great big hockey stick as part of the neon sign outside. He could often be found on the premises. Sadly, neither the man or the tavern are there anymore.
I'm happy to say they DO make'em like that these days, just not as often. Great career.
Just winced in pain listening to the CBC massacre the pronunciation of his name (accent is on the second syllable and should have the soft SH not CH sound).
Rocket Richard and the Pocket Rocket are legends.
Alzheimer's took him out of the game.
Yesterday the DJ on Chez 106 mentioned that he would be crossing over the bridge into Hull and sit besides his bronze statue. The only problem is that the statue is of Maurice (The Rocket) Richard lol
Even with a life sentence as a somewhat fatalistic Leafs fan I can still appreciate The Pocket Rocket. Maybe it's my age, but his career seems to me to be in a league with few others. Howe, Hull, Keon, Richard...His smaller stature, like Cournoyer (and maybe Mikita) seemed to be an advantage somehow.
Loyal to his club till the end !! Dont see that anymore.
