    There's a part of me that will never not love what hockey was back then, especially at its height, which I would argue Wings/Avs, Draper/Lemieux was.

    I think this article was the best one that I have read on hockey. I didn't realize that the Wings were the team that lit up Roy in MTL and walked off the ice. I remember the game since I was up in Plattsburgh watching it when it happened. Huge talk in the north country on how that game played out. I wonder if he wasn't traded to the Avs a few days later that the brawl wouldn't have been as big.

    Bump because I finally got around to reading this article and echo the sentiments above: this is an epic retelling of an epic rivalry, an epic fight, and an epic moment of Detroit legend. Must read 100%, and might I say, it's super well written by Kris Draper.
