One of the greats. Skill, class, and even though he did a lot of damage against the oil, I’ve never disliked him like a Modano. In fact, he’s always been a favorite, and I cheered for him anytime he wasn’t facing the oil.
Feel exactly the same. He cut the Oilers from the neck through the belt buckle but I loved watching him play.
I can’t say I’ll miss seeing him eviscerate the Oilers’ D or goal, but when I think of the kind of hockey player, and person, I’d like some of our young prospects to become, Joe Sakic is at the top of the list.
Still get chills when I think about the gold medal game in Salt Lake.
Put a country on his shoulders and then walked around the dman and wired one far side.
What a beauty.
Hopefully someone RNH can try to emulate. On and off the ice. Lots of similarities…
Spent some time last night watching his highlight reels. Olympics in 2002 will go down for me as a top five hockey game/memory. Beauty player.
One of the classiest guys to ever play the game.
Too bad it never rubbed off on Patrick Roy…
