HabsInsideOut.com has a great flashback piece on none other than "The Roadrunner" Yvan Cournoyer.
Cournoyer is doing really well these days. He's found an incredible talent and passion for woodworking, and the article displays a couple of fine examples of his skills. The 64 year old has got a beautiful wife, and he enjoys fine cigars.
Everything is good, except for one problem with their son.
My son is a Maple Leafs fan,” Cournoyer says, a blasphemy uttered barely above a whisper. “He wanted a Mats Sundin jersey last Christmas. I asked him: ‘Do you actually think a Toronto sweater is going to come into this house?’There are two other parts to the Cournoyer flashback, both remembering his involvement with the famed 1972 Summit Series.
“I don’t say this proudly, but I had to get it for him.”
Elsewhere, The Saskatoon Phoenix recently caught up with former defenseman Brad Marsh. He's a very successful restaurateur in Ottawa these days, and is very much enjoying his former team's playoff success. The newspaper asks "Marshy" about his life after hockey, about his hockey career, and about the game nowadays.
