I wanted to thank all of those who have visited the Legends of Hockey Network this past week. All 12,000 unique visitors.
This has been a busy week not only in terms of traffic, but with new legends. This past week I've finished and posted biographies on:
Larry Aurie, the original Detroit Red Wing great
Johnny Bucyk, the long serving Boston Bruin
Ferny Flaman, the hard hitting Bruins defenseman
Jean Pusie, a professional wrestler/hockey player
Herb Cain, the one time record holder for points in a season
Camille "The Eel" Henry, the slippery star of NY City
and the unrelated goaltender Sugar Jim Henry
International readership has helped spike record traffic levels. I've had 100s of hits from the Netherlands and Estonia, as well as oddball hits such as an elementary school in Mongolia, a New Zealander searching for Harold Snepsts, and an Icelandic Public Library.
With that in mind, my final addition to the Legends of Hockey Network for this week is an international star. Even with names like Borje Salming and Peter Forsberg, there remains no more respected name in Swedish hockey than Tumba Johansson.
