    I would wish everyone a belated Boxing Day, but most of you might not even know what that is since our friends in the U.S. tossed out that tradition when they tossed all that tea into Boston Harbour. In British Commonwealth countries December 26th is a statutory holiday known as Boxing Day. Historically it was the day that servants and trades people were given off in lieu of Christmas Day since they would be serving their wealthy or royal employers that day. A "Christmas Box" was given out with gifts and/or money and workers were allowed to have the day off to visit their families.
    So not a great history, but it does mean that in Canada we get an extra day off at Christmas with most businesses and offices closed. Some retailers open to offer "Boxing Day" blow out sales in case anybody has any money left. Sort of a "pre-Black Friday" event. It wasn't until the mid 90's that some retailers broke the law of by opening and eventually the law was amended to allow a wider range of business' to open but workers are entitled their regular pay as well as the statutory holiday pay, so many employees will volunteer to work for the extra pay.

    As a Canadian, how does it feel that a Russian is on pace break the goal record set by "the great one"?

    As a penguins fan i hate the caps anyway, hated them even more when Jager went to play for them...so naturally i hate all caps players/coaches/etc

    My team has had some terrific generational talent.  Jager and lemieux then Crosby and Malkin.  While Malkin and Jager would both be super stars on nearly any other team they played/play behind arguably the best in the league.  It's unfortunate that health issues casued so many lost games for Crosby and lemieux, especially Super Mario where neither reached the mile stones they could have. Still great resumes but the amount of games they both lost in their prime and still such amazing numbers, it's easy to wonder what if???

    If lemieux had beaten gretzkys record id be a little peeved over ovie breaking it.  I just dont consider ovi much of a team player.  

    1987 team Canada imho best hockey team ever.    Not just because of 66 and 99, the supporting cast was scary.

    Oddly enough for a Canadian, I'm not a huge hockey fan. Sure, I'll watch a game and have played it, but have tended to be more interested in individual sports and motor sports. Agree on the '87 team.
    As far as records, they are meant to be broken. Sure, Gretzky and Lemieux were way ahead of their time and Gretzky's records were phenomenal in their day, but the players these days are constantly becoming bigger, faster, better conditioned, etc. so no doubt in my mind it will eventually happen. Like him or hate him, Ovechkin is a beast.

    Well when I was a kid I had the pleasure to watch just about every game that the great #4 Bobby Orr played. I know people think I am a homer (lol) but IMHO he was the greatest of all time. He change the way the game is played.... Go look at some youtube videos of him and I am sure everyone will agree........... Just say'n

    No doubt the game has changed, lemieux was the closest anyone has come to the single season points total gretzky put out for years, 200 plus points a season just isnt happening unless major changes are made in how the game is played.    Gretzky wasn't the best skater or stick handler, he was just 4 steps ahead anyone else on the ice.  Even after his time in LA when he was "washed up" he was right at a ppg guy.   That is one heII of a washed up player.


    Howe was amazing but I'm a little impartial to say that lemieux, the line backer size power forward who skated like a 5 ft 8 power skater was an equal when it came to play making ability as well as hockey IQ.  A majority of lemieuxs career was in low scoring clutch and grab, trap style and insanely large goalie pad/glove era.  Hextall was the worst i can remember with over sized everything, then again flyers are always the worst.

    Had it not been for health issues,  he dressed in a private locker room for a while where trainers had to dress him.  Mario didn't want his team seeing how much pain he was in.  Not to mention he returned to a season 20 some odd games in, had his last chemo therapy right before hitting the ice and stole the scoring title that year.  



    Not sure anyone has a hockey story that can top that.

    @PickleRick said "Not sure anyone has a hockey story that can top that."

    Check out the story of Bobby Orr's knee surgeries and how he couldn't walk. I once saw Bobby Orr take the puck and started skating in circles and killed almost a whole 2 minute penalty by himself.  Mario Lemieux was an amazing player to say the least. I would take Lemieux over Gretzky any day of the week but for me its Orr....... Just say'n

    Ovi not a team player?  Explain.   

    Sports allegiances are such an odd form of expression.  In no other facet of modern social life is it acceptable to say "I hate all <insert group here>".  Exception:  it is always acceptable to dis the Dallas Cowboys.

    Would be fun to see a gretzky vs lemieux vs orr and toss in ovi for handy 1 on one tournament...all in their prime.  

    Orr and lemieux both had major health issues in their prime that cost them dearly. Orr could have played into the late 80s possibly and mario could have possibly won a cup with Malkin and Crosby....twice.

    Reverting the thread.... hope you all had a great Christmas with family and friends. Coz I don’t post we’re away when we are - there are programs that look for those messages etc for use by nefarious types - I can now say we had a great time in Denver this week with older son and his GF and her 2 boys and our other son joined us for 4 days down from Bozeman MT. Great to be all together at Christmas for the first time in 3 years. Also nice to be home, especially after delays out of Denver from mechanical issues and weather that gave us an overnight in Chicago.

    Regards,
