Red Berenson Reminiscing

tee rap of Rink RAP with some great stories from Michigan head hockey coach Red Berenson, like this on Bobby Orr...

“I was playing for the Rangers in his rookie year. We’d heard all this hype about this one player who was supposed to be so good at age 18. And Harry Howell was our veteran defenseman, I think he had won the Norris trophy the previous year.

So there was some talk about, there was no way this kid could be that good. I mean Harry Howell won the Norris Trophy. And after the first period we were looking around at each other and somebody said to Harry, ‘Harry, forget about the Norris Trophy. You’re never going to win that again.’ This is after one period in Boston against Orr his rookie year.” 

many more

thanks to an RT from Billy Jaffe for the pointer
