I was a fan of the Big Bad Bruins of the '70s and I have an O'Reilly goal puck from when the NHL would label and sell each goal puck. As for the Rangers, it took a bit to get used to Brad Park coming to the Bruins but he was instrumental in the success of the late '70s team.

I remember that trade. I think the Bruins got Ratelle and Park (Esposito used to call him Krap) and the Rangers received Esposito and Carol Vadnais.

What a puck collection!

To see the Gumper and Eddie G brings back a lot of memories.

The Rangers brought in a tough guy named Bert Wilson to deal with Shero's street gang. Somewhere on youtube there is a clip of him knocking one of the Flyer apes out cold with Bill Chadwick roaring about what a going over he'd given him.

Was also watching the night O'Reilly went into the stands. Made a lifelong hockey fan out of my girlfriend's 10 year old brother who couldn't believe what he was seeing. I always thought marauding through the stands like that and taking on all comers was a real good way to get a hole put in you.

Carol Vadnais: While he was in Boston Bill Chadwick used to say -"you don't have to take the puck from Vadnais, he'll give it to you." Think that was one of those trades that took the fans of both cities a long time to warm up to.

Again, a great collection!!

I could never get used to Jean Ratelle being a Bruin.

The Rangers never won the Cup during those years, but the hockey was great.

And Bill Chadwick was a great announcer.

Bill Chadwick and Jim Gordon were a great pair. Closely followed by Sam Rosen and John Davidson.

Not sure what was worse, seeing Ratelle in a Bruin uniform or seeing Giacomin in a Red Wing one.

I think it's awesome that the Garden faithful still do the Potvin Sucks whistle chant even though probably a lot of them don't know it originated in 1979 when Denis Potvin hit Ulf Nilsson with a cheap shot in the Semi Finals that cost us any chance of beating Montreal in the Finals. I still hate that guy today.

I also have to get a Barry Beck puck. Maybe I can get one signed "Shoot the puck Barry"

I remember back in the day when the Rangers acquired Gilles Marotte. His nickname was "Captain Crunch."

When he came to the Rangers he stopped hitting.

Hey Mark,

all you're missing is arguably the Rangers' most interesting personality and the man most responsible for artistic mask design... Gilles Gratton.
Oh, and Lester Patrick of course... which should be easy.

If you'd like a Gratton puck, PM me, he's a good friend, and it's perfect timing as his book is now out with a signed copy also not a problem....

Brent,
That is really cool. He is definitely on the list of one I will get. I will pm you shortly.

Of the HOFers, hardest ones will be the Bently's, Boucher, Hextall, Harvey, Horton, and Patrick I think, especially on pucks. They are all available on flat items, just somewhat expensive for some.
