    That was awesome.

    I remember 1982 pretty well. I was not a Canucks fan, but I was a Gretzky and Bossy fan. Even when they got to the finals, I still wasn't in love with the Canucks, even though everyone around me was. All those kids hated the Islanders, and Bossy. I traded a rusty bike lock to Chucky Baker for a Mike Bossy hockey card (because he collected cards, I didn't, and he had to get something), which I managed to keep until high school, and lost in a move.

    Bossy was pure class, and so fcuking natural (even though, as he says, it didn't come naturally, it was hard work and constant repetition).

    Great read.

    Mike Bossy and Billy Smith were my keeper cards. Loved them.
    Looked up the 82 team and check out the Canadian content.

    I remember it too - my Dad somehow got a pair of tickets to Game 4! Don't remember much of the game other than where our seats were (first row balcony directly behind the net).

    Imagine trying to make your mark back then in the Canadian Junior hockey system, and NOT being a fighter?
