So I think I know a few things about the game. Not sure how long u have been playing hockey for but u sound like someone who never really played it competitively. (How could someone not see a slap pass until the 2000's? That really surprises me) And please stop with blind accusations. I m not "Foolish" nor a "younger" fan. Sharing ur opinion with other fans is good. But when the comments are false and offensive to other fans, u need to stop and reflect. And having a lot of fans is great for the organization. But fans like u who throw blind remarks add no value to it. Praise is due where it is due but stop adding false praises. Sedins are great as they are. There is zero doubt that they are future HoFers. Fans like u don't help them. U pretty much taint their true great accomplishments. So hopefully, u ll be more thoughtful with ur comments in the future. Good rebuttable. I always scratch my head when there are comparisons to different eras, like Howe and Richard were slow out of shape players and would be eaten alive in today's faster NHL and 6 6 goalies. Howe was such a physical specimen that a famous doctor who evaluated top athletes physicality put him at the very tippy top of the heap with ALI and Foreman. These guys didn't have the same regimen as they have today, but it doesn't mean they were pilons either. And as from the topic, a hard pass to an open guy has been around before guys like Eddie Shore patrolled the Blueline, the Sedins didn't invent this move, they popularized it. Just like the Slapshot was given credit to BOOM BOOM and Hull Senior, other guys used it at times decades before them. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
