Kukla's Korner Hockey

The Big M & The Black Hawks

from the Toronto Star,
A whim of fate decreed that Frank Mahovlich should score his 250th goal as a Leaf, a few hours after funeral services for the man who almost spent a million bucks to make him a Black Hawk. Not more than three or four persons actually knew the real story of what happened between the Leafs and Jim Norris, the night he bought the Big M for more money than ever was paid for one athlete. Because the main participants had been into the grape, following a shinny dinner, it was logical to shrug off the whole affair as an alcoholic publicity stunt.
