He was the best of his era. Made the all star team 21 times, how many frigging players even play for 21 years. He got to play a professional sport with his sons, not sure anyone in any sport has been able to do that since in the top league in the world.

TP not sure he had any brain injuries from his hockey career. He had a stroke at 86 so the last 2 years he wasn't quite there. That stroke was over 30 years after his career and he was healthy until then. I will take that as my future.
