5' 7"/160 lbs of pure heart.... he never quit in a game, never stopped fighting.

 

The original Honey Badger.

 

Think Cliff Ronning with a LOT more speed and the grit of someone a lot bigger.

 

More points than his brother the 'Rocket'... led the league in assists a number of times.

 

He drank from the Cup more than anyone... or anyone ever will.

 

Henri-Richard-Montreal-Canadiens-Stanley

 

 His finest moment was in the twilight of his career the 1971 Cup Finals where he scored twice, including the winner in a 3-2 Game 7 victory.

Sad to hear the Pocket Rocket passed. What a classy guy. I think the last Cup he won was legendary. Habs were losing the Cup finals and Al MacNeil sits the Pocket. After losing Game #5 the Pocket explodes in th3 dressing room and calls MacNeil the worst coach he had played for. Word was he slapped MacNeil across the face. Habs won the last two games with Richard scoring the Cup winner. MacNeil never coached in the NHL again.

 

i met Richard in the Vancouver airport back in the ‘90’s. Looked great. I thanked him for the years of entertainment. He was very shy and obviously a quality person. RIP Join your teammates.

The guy won almost as many cups during his career as the Leafs have won all time. Hell of a player and never really got the apprieciation he should have because of his brother. R.I.P.
