Pollock Shaped The Habs & The Game

from Evan Grossman of NHL.com,

When Sam Pollock became general manager of the Montreal Canadiens in 1964, the Habs were in the middle of a four-year Stanley Cup drought. At that time, that was unheard of in the hockey-mad metropolis – especially after the club had won five straight titles from 1956-1960.
As a result, it was not the easiest time to be at the helm and certainly not the easiest city to be running hockey operations.
This, of course, was the same city where, as the legendary Tom Johnson, a member of those Montreal dynasty teams told NHL.com, “If you lost two games in a row, you had to walk the back streets.”

continued...  Read it, even if you are 15 or 85, we have lost a part of the game and he must be remembered.
