r/hockey – Throwback to 1986, when Bob McKenzie, then editor-in-chief of The Hockey News, reported on the Sports Illustrated Oilers controversy…and nearly lost his job for giving this cover the green light..


I ran into Claude and his son Brendon in our elevator, whereas heading out for an evening in town. We might have already began the night time off, and have been already fairly primed.

Informed him he has a hell of a participant when he was on, and that we hoped his child might be to the crew what he did for those he was on, minus the unhealthy penalties, the horrible combating, and the hate from different groups.

He replied with, “that may be fairly boring then, no?”

And proceeded to want us an awesome night time, after a pat on the again and a hand shake.

Hated the man watching him rising up, however appeared like a magnificence at that second in time. Lol.
