When I started remembering former NHL players at GreatestHockeyLegends.com about four years ago, the very first player I ever wrote about was Boom Boom Geoffrion.
Ever since I've wondered why did I pick Geoffrion first? Why not Rocket Richard? Or Gordie Howe? Bobby Orr? Wayne Gretzky? Mario Lemieux? Nope, I picked Boom Boom.
Not that Geoffrion was a bad choice. He won six Stanley Cups, two Art Ross trophies, a Hart and a Calder trophy. He was only the second player in NHL history to score 50 goals in a season. And he helped revolutionized the sport with his slap shot. He truly was one of the all time greats.
