On Sunday I stopped at a garage sale in St. Hubert and bought this 1970s Sher-Wood goalie stick for five dollars.
A stick with “K. Dryden 29″ stamped on the upper shaft.
It’s not a Dryden game-used stick, no marks are scattered about and it’s never been taped (those are fibreglass strips you see on the blade), but it’s from his era, exactly what he would have used in the first part of the 1970s, and definitely, five bucks is pretty darn good.
And with the Habs’ goalie situation now, I’m also treating it as a good omen for the boys.
Let the magic of the five buck Dryden stick begin.
