The Rocket & The Cyclone

Here's a great pic of Maurice "Rocket" Richard meeting Cyclone Taylor at the Hockey Hall of Fame?

Do you think the two discussed selling Richard's fishing lines and reels in Taylor's Vancouver store - Cyclone Taylor Sports?

The store - which was actually started by Cyclone's son Fred Jr. in 1957 - still exists today and is run by Mark Taylor - Cyclone's grandson and a former NHL player himself.

Here's another of Cyclone Taylor. It's amazing he was such a great skater given he's dulling his blades on one of Vancouver's many seaside docks.
