David Pasternak, Hall Of Fame, Dawn Sweeney discussed on The Ray & Dregs Hockey Podcast


You're David pasternak, the rules to signing David to me are different than their signing somebody else. One of my favorite players in the NHL, I think one of the best goal scorers in the NHL, I think David pasternak and that contract is and this is no luck man. And this isn't news to dawn Sweeney and the bruins. It's of ultimate importance to them. If you decide you're not going to meet whatever they're asking prices and you move David pasternak, you are in full rebuild. Full rebuild. The guy's a star. If you let him go, then you spend the next ten years looking for David past or not. Agreed. No. All right, let's wrap up headlines real quick. You bring up the 72 series of the summit series, Paul Henderson. Should he be in the Hall of Fame or honored some other way with the number 19 retired internationally? That's sort of thing. I've been really consistent with this and it makes me feel better reading Paul's feelings on it. I don't think he should be in the Hall of Fame. To me, the Hall of Fame is not about a time frame of amazing, amazing achievement. We're really talking about 8 games. We're talking about the last three where he scored the game winning goal, which is just beyond remarkable. But Paul Henderson doesn't think he should be in the Hall of Fame. I've not thought he should either, only by, I think the Hall of Fame's for my criteria would be if I were voting. It's for the great. It's not for the very good. And that is achievement should be honored. I mean, of course it should be. It's the most, I was in the building when Sidney Crosby scored in 2010. It was amazing. Amazing. And the percentage of Canadian people watching the game was astounding. The 72 goal was bigger. It was more important in a global the wrong word. I mean, Canada, Soviet world. It was far bigger. It was unknown. We were playing, you know, the whole circumstance of the whole thing was amazing. Henderson's performance, among others, was off the charts, but I don't think he's a Hall of Famer. Excellent. There you go. Terrific way to wrap up headlines and once again, thank you to our good friends at Boston pizza.
