Happy Father's Day

The man pictured above needs no introduction. He is "The Flower." He is "Le Demon Blond" He is Guy Lafleur, and he is my dad's favorite hockey player of all time.

Growing up as a kid, I'd always here stories about Lafleur, especially about his long hair flying in the wind. He was one of the very few truly electrifying hockey players in hockey history. Every goal was an event. Every time he touched the puck people would be on the edge of their seats, knowing that there was a good chance they were about to witness something magical.

So on Father's Day 2007, I direct you to Guy Lafleur, the father of so many great moments in hockey history.
