Early Morning Line- Marcel Dionne

"It's a very, very sad day. I've known Guy since I was 9 years old -- minor hockey, junior hockey, the NHL, the Legends alumni tours. There's no more to say for me. People don't know how closely I've stayed in touch with him. … I was at the Hockey Hall of Fame a few days before Mike Bossy died. I told them that Mike and Guy Lafleur, both suffering from cancer at the time, were always going to be remembered in the Great Hall. Great players die, but they'll be in the Hall forever.

"I was more of the playmaker, Guy was more of the sniper. I joked with him that with the defensemen he had -- Serge Savard, Guy Lapointe and Larry Robinson -- he should have scored 1,000 goals. We were great, great friends. I admired very much what he did with the public, he really took care of them, was very respectful. Many times on the Legends tour I had to stop the people who had gathered around him because we had to catch a plane or jump on the bus to another town. They were very enjoyable days, really a lot of fun. Guy and I both really enjoyed playing the game.

-Marcel Dionne on Guy Lafleur.  Dave Stubbs of NHL.com has more from Dionne and other NHL greats.
