Larry Robinson's Number Retired

It was great to see the Montreal Canadians finally retire Larry Robinson's #19 yesterday evening in front of a pack Molson Centre. A bonus was they were playing the Ottawa Senators the team I cheer for now. Back in the 70's the Canadians were my team and Larry and the boys (especially Ken Dryden) were everything to me. My first NHL hockey game was at the old Forum against the Atlanta Flames. I also remember seeing the Canadians play a softball game in the off season in Winchester(Robinson hometown). That's were I first got my first autograph and realized how big these guys are. I love the picture of Larry shaking the hand of Spezza. Sweet.
Congrats Larry
