Honestly, this Rotoworld timeline for Howe’s life and career reads more like a series of Chuck Norris jokes than it does a factual career resume for “Mr. Hockey.”
It really does. To play with that much of an impact well into his 40’s and early 50’s seems ridiculous now, let alone back in the 70s without all we know today about treating injuries and working out.
It’s a good day for hockey fans to take a moment and remind ourselves of how great Gordie Howe really was.
