Anytime I can alert the readers of a story about "old time" hockey, I will always pass it on whenever possible.
from the Detroit Free Press, More than a year after he last played in a regular-season hockey game, Steve Yzerman is expected to make his comeback Thursday night with the Red Wings.
Ted Lindsay knows a little about how he feels.
In Lindsay's day, NHL players held a second job in the off-season to make ends meet, and elliptical cross-training regimens were decades away from common use.
Lindsay's comeback in 1964 was one of the most remarkable in sports. Most players back then retired in their early 30s, and Lindsay himself first retired at age 34. He hadn't played for the Red Wings for more than seven years.
