Great predictions from the Rocket

"I don't think a sporting event could spark a real riot nowadays. The riot squad would stop it right away. The 1955 riot happened because the police decided not to intervene or make arrests. Also the public has changed. Most season tickets belong to companies."

Maurice Richard in the Journal de Montreal 30 April, 1989.

Times have sure changed. The Rocket punched a ref, Clarence Campbell said yer gone for the playoffs. But Campbell sat right in with the crowd that wanted to kill him. Interesting times indeed.
