The week that was at Vintage Leaf Memories

Every week we try to blend a little nostalgia, some old-time memories and hockey history sprinkled with thoughts on current Maple Leaf happenings.

I draw your attention to the most recent addition to our audio vault, our new interview with legendary hockey writer Red Fisher of the Montreal Gazette. Red shares his memories of the Leafs of yesteryear, including names like Frank Mahovlich, Dickie Duff, Bert Olmstead, Keon, Sittler, Gilmour, Ballard and Smythe. You’ll enjoy it. Click on the link.

Older fans may want to check out the post on The Original Twelve”, a retrospective on the massive change the NHL underwent when it doubled in size in one fell swoop in 1967. Another article featured our look at “12 Things Vintage Leaf preferred about pre-1967 expansion hockey”.

In a unique exercise, my recent post compiled a list which amounted to a 20-man “All-Star” team - a team comprised of the best non-Leaf players of the decade of the ‘60s.

We invite you to compile your own list of the best of the ‘60s and send it to us.

For current Leaf fans, the post “Ponikarovsky off the edge” touched on what the winger can bring to the team- some nights.

As always we appreciate your feedback.
