The Howe Tune

Remember the KK post about a month ago called “Gordie Howe Is The Greatest Of Them All”?  Well, if you enjoyed it I suggest you read Dave Stubbs at the Montreal Gazette today,

Whether Detroit Red Wings Hall of Famer Gordie Howe was the greatest of them all, regardless of the record book, might forever be debated by hockey fans.

But in the spring of 1963, when Howe was celebrated in a hit song by Verdun’s Bob Davies, there was no doubt.

Tonight, the man they call Mr. Hockey will be joined by a handful of other Red Wings legends at the Bell Centre when the Canadiens pay tribute to one of their Original Six rivals, another special event on the road to the Habs’ 2009 centennial.

With the game being on Versus tonight, we can only hope they care enough about their fans that they show this pre-game tribute!
