Big Skates To Fill

Many of you know I like to promote "old school" hockey whenever possible. The pedigree doesn't get any better than this! from Shawn P. Roarke of NHL.com,
Blake Geoffrion might have the Montreal Canadiens in his blood, but he has the Nashville Predators in his heart. This Geoffrion is the fourth generation of a family that has known nothing but NHL success. Geoffrion's great-grandfather, Howie Morenz, and his grandfather, Bernie "Boom-Boom" Geoffrion, are in the Hockey Hall of Fame. His father, Danny Geoffrion, was a No. 1 pick by Montreal, who played more than 100 NHL games. All three played for the Canadiens during their respective careers. That explains Blake's Montreal allegiance. But, where does Nashville fit into the equation?
continued If you are not familar with either Howie Morenz or Bernie Geoffrion, do yourself a favor and read up on the legends of the game!
