You're dissing Bernier, aren't you?  AREN'T YOU??

Better to perish in the Uplands of Truth than on the Plains of Hyperbole.  Bury me not, I beg you, on that lone prair-ree.

Alas, poor Yorick. He just didn't want to let the bear have that fish.

I just want to point out that for the purposes of this discussion I am not including Hasek as a reactionary/reflex goalie.  Therefore, Felix Potvin remains the greatest reflex goalie of all time.

On this, you and I agree.  If I could bring back one player to today's squad it would be Sundin.  If I could bring back two, the second would be Potvin.  Side note: funny that their names should rhyme, eh?   8) :o ;) :P :-X

Good.  Now I won't have cause to complain about it, bad-temperedly, as I did Sat nite.

And, to continue bringing the thread back to the topic at hand, for the record, Boston can suck it.

Are you saying that Mandela wasn't a positional guy?

Mandela was highly adaptive and used a number of different styles.

So true.  Anyone who did 27 years on Robben Island and came out an even better man had to be adaptive.

Especially when you consider many of the tactics the ANC were using before that were similar to those used by universally reviled terrorist groups today.

Also, to be able to remain such a calm and measured leader while married to Winnie . . . the man was a saint.

I really have to get back to work now but there's a long discussion to be had here sometime on one man's terrorist being another man's freedom fighter.

Perhaps, though, this thread is definitely not the place for it.

Rambo 3's dedication was edited post 9/11, if I recall. I guess movies are also not what the threads about...

Do you mean Potvin's comically oversized pads where the best of all time?

I heard an interesting tidbit recently that he was offered a contract(Minnesota I think) post-lockout on the condition he trim the pads, he chose to retire.

Probably hogwash.
