    I loved the line. Magic in motion.

    It was magic. Earlier we were bantering about in another thread about old school hockey and you know what, I'm thrilled I witnessed it. I don't know what we've lost over the years, but to me it's some sad that players had to target Crosby on hit jobs mandated by team managers.

    Just wrong.

    Guy. Shutt. Boom Boom. The Rocket. Cornuyer (never did know how to spell it so forgive me) So many I can't name anymore.Hull. Makita. Keon.

    So many good players.

    Im not much of a hockry fan at all but was a little back in the day and I remember when Boom Boom Geffrion was traded to the lowley Rangers. Of course he was an over the hill guy at that point but it was such a big deal for the ranges to get a 50 goal scorer (ie a guy who had scored 50 goals once about 6 years earlier (in somewhat of a fluke year for him -- he never scored 40 any other year in the nhl).

    Even the rangers back then had their notable players -- like Rod Gilbert, Eddie Giacomin Vic Hadfield (who himself became a big scorer once the rules changed)
