The icons of the NHL were everywhere I turned throughout the year. Jason Garrison Youth Jersey I was delighted to cross paths regularly in Montreal with old friends Cournoyer and Guy Lafleur, as well as other legends of the game in airports, hotels, limousines, buses, arenas and coffee shops.ObrazekWhen we weren't sitting to talk, these men took my calls, without exception. That wasn't always easy Carl Banks Jersey because not every conversation was about a career highlight.ObrazekThrough the http://www.authenticflyersprosale.com/chris-conner-jersey-c-1_2.html emotional eyes of Lindsay, there was an early January appreciation of Milt Schmidt, 98, the iconic Boston Bruins leader who was too ill to attend the New Year's Eve dinner and Jan. 1 Centennial Classic. Schmidt died on Jan. 4.There would be tributes http://www.wuhu80.com/chris-clark-jersey-c-2_15.html written during the year about Jon Ryan Womens Jersey Red Wings owner Mike Ilitch, unsung Maple Leafs star Tod http://www.officialbearsshops.com/shop-by-players-connor-shaw-jersey-c-2_41.html Sloan, Senators general manager Bryan Murray and Blackhawks cornerstone defenseman Pierre Pilote.With the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim in 2002, general manager Murray gave Mike Babcock his first NHL coaching job. Murray means so much to Babcock that the Maple Leafs coach called me from Russia, where he was on a scouting trip, to share his memories.Babcock would be on the phone again on Dec. 26, as would Glenn Hall, Dave Keon and Frank Mahovlich, to share thoughts about Bower, who died of pneumonia at age 93."Johnny was a spectacular, spectacular man, that's what jumps out at you right away," Babcock said. "Even at his age, he lived large. He had an infectious personality and he made people feel great. It was fun to have him around. …"No question about it, when he walked by Adam Thielen Jersey you, introduced himself, or you just saw him, you were impressed by him, by the gentleness and the kindness of him. … We're http://www.authenticrangersprostore.com/glenn-anderson-jersey-c-2_44.html proud to be able to call him a Leaf and he gives us a great role model, someone to aspire to be like."And on a sizzling hot late July afternoon, I attended and reported on the suburban Montreal funeral of Don Johns, who had played 153 NHL games between 1960-67. One of those games, on Jan. 5, 1966, was for the Canadiens.http://www.myindiagate.com/community/forum/topic/183180
