Nice compliments for Bob Gainey
A Vancouver Canucks fan expresses his opinion on Rob Niedermayer, and he has nice things to say about our Montreal Canadiens’ GM, when he played in the NHL.
Bob Gainey, of course, was a great player, and not merely good. Ken Dryden once wrote that Bob’s contribution to the game was that he proved once and for all that a forward could be a genuine star without scoring a lot. Anatoli Tarasov called him the best player in the world depite the fact he did not score. Gainey was so good the NHL invented a trophy to give him even though the Selke was defined incorrectly.
