Photo flashback

I'd like to share with you some photos I recently found, all on Facebook.

Guy and Mario Tremblay with Le Coupe Stanley, circa 1986.

Guy and Larry Robinson, also circa 1980's.

And finally, a young Guy with his hockey team in Sept-Iles.  Can you pick out the young Carbo?  (The answer is a few lines down.)

Guy is first from the right, in the first row.

Some terrific photo finds!

The Trade, 20 years on

It was twenty years ago today that the Montreal Canadiens traded Guy to the St. Louis Blues for Jim Montgomery.  Carbo would play one season in St. Louis before moving on to Dallas the following year, playing five seasons there and winning a third Stanley Cup.

Stu Cowan of the Montreal Gazette has a nice article about the anniversary here, which includes the story that ran in the Gazette the day after the trade.

I hope everyone is having a wonderful summer!
