Let's just enjoy this

We'll be along with a full review of last night sooner or later, but for now I just want to watch this over and over. Dryden may be wearing glasses, but he still has reflexes.

I love the fake slapshot & smirk on Dryden at 1:50... One of the coolest nights of hockey ever!

Watching them all come out, one great player after another; Dryden & Savard with their glasses; the shit-eating grin on Pete Mahovlich's face; Robinson trying to toss the puck to fans behind the glass, only to have it bounce of the netting ("Oops! That's new...)

Not on this video, but at the end of the ceremony, Charles Aznavour's "For Me Formidable". Awesome.

As soon as I saw the Roy, Lafleur, Robinson, Naslund and company for the warm up, I knew the Bruins had no chance.

Didn't Dryden always wear glasses? I love that he's wearing Price's retro pads from last year. And those old sticks still kick ass (up yours 200$ composites!)

I also enjoyed the fake Robinson toss...
It may have been a trick of the lighting, but did I actually see a 43 on the ice?

*sigh*

Van Hab said...

Yup... that's definitely Brisebois at 1:48

You know I don't even feel that badly about his inclusion. It's all just awesome.

Wow! What a night! Never had a chance to log on last night (i.e. couldn't tear myself away from the big screen). Just wanted to say what an awesome preview by 29, to only be outdone by more awesome pre-game ceremony, only to be outdone (to the surprise of absolutely everybody) by the mostest awesomest actual game and the new Habs (2nd Century version).

That pre-game. Pure class. All the way. I'm still hard.

By the way, unless kevincrumbs and Boob took them, there should still be 36 pairs of tube socks hidden away under the stage at Super Sexe. The DB Coopers of the tube sock world.

just got home from from my one day jaunt to the game. of course the first thing i do is click on fhf. . that review was as usual hilarious. I can't say enough about the game or pre-game just fucking unbelievable, and worth every penny. Too bad i was up in sec 305, my squid never reached the ice.

I missed it all! But the video you posted was awesome - takes me back to when I was a boy. OMG HIO clip with Dryden was awesome! What a legend! Thanks guys! Well done to the Habs on the night - it had to be! Let's hope the second season has just begun. And for one last bit of nostagia, let's all join Dutchie with his megaphone and scream from standing room only at the forum - GOOOOOOOOO HAAAAAAAABSSSSSSS GOOOOOOO!....GOOOOOOOO HAAAAAABBBBBSSSS GOOOOOOOOO!

*still sobbing*

Seriously, though - I knew that Roy, Dryden, Guy, Robinson etc etc were going to be dressed.

But nothing prepared me for seeing #33 in his equipment again. Huge honking sobs when I saw that.

Sigh.

This is why I can't quit this team, even when they suck and break my heart.

Here's better Alumni warmup video. You get to see the Roy entree, which totally amazed the crowd. Still feel the vibe, never screamed that much in my life.
