Great story by Nicholas Cotsonika on Mark Howe!
Nicholas Cotsonika is my favorite hockey writer. It's fitting he wrote this story.
When you read this story look at some of the insane +/- numbers Mark put up as a d-man. Also understand he recorded 82 pts as a d-man with Philly in the mid 80's. He regularly put up 50 to 60 pts in his career as a d-man for goodness sake! Outstanding player, outstanding guy!!
I find it funny Cotsonika mentions Lathrop Village where he grew up. I'm surprised since nobody else seems to know where it is! lol
While I was disappointed Dave Andreychuk didn't make it this year, who could argue with this selection?
Congrats to Mark Howe!! A very well deserved honor. Couldn't happen to a nicer guy!
