“Gordie was the ultimate. He could put the puck in the net and everyone was scared of him too.

“Today in the NHL you’ve got to hire a guy like me when you have a Crosby on your team or an Ovechkin, guys like that, so then you don’t have to worry about it.  With Gordie Howe, you didn’t have to do that.”

—Georges Laraque on Gordie Howe, speaking at a charity event today

Wings fans, I am definitely not saying that he is Gordie Howe.

But one of the guys, at least for this biased Canuck fan, who plays in the same way George talked about is a Michigan native.

Ryan Kesler.  He makes his own room out there too.
