HOF Post Game Comments
November 12, 2012 in Boston Bruins, Colorado Avalanche, Detroit Red Wings, Elmer Lach, Florida Panthers, Montreal Canadiens, Toronto Maple Leafs, Vancouver Canucks Tags: Adam Oates, Elmer Lach, Gary Bettman, Joe Sakic, Mats Sundin, Patrick Roy, Pavel Bure, Ronald Corey
The Hockey Hall of Fame Induction ceremony went off swimmingly, except for the time maybe when Mats Sundin pronounced Elmer Lach’s name “Latch,” and Patrick Roy took a swipe at the Canadiens, saying they decided to trade him, which only sort of happened after Roy told Ronald Corey he’d never play another game with the team. Maybe he’s upset he wasn’t hired as coach or GM.
The speeches went smoothly, although Bill Hay’s seemed long and drawn out, but I thought Pavel Bure’s was excellent, as were the others..
And to cap off a fine night, Gary Bettman looked tired, hollow, concerned, pale, and not a happy camper whatsoever, and the women looked lovely.
