"He instinctively can find the shining greatness of our American culture and does a good job of highlighting it (although he also does have those rare lapses when he writes about hockey, but that is something caused by impurities in the Eastern waters or something)." Erik Keilholtz

Johnny Bucyk is honored on his 50th year with the Bruins:
The Bruins owned the city in his heyday, and the stocky, granite-hipped Bucyk was always the quiet, hard-working, kind-hearted mayor who maintained a balance in the dressing room. A link then to the club's hard-luck days of the late '50s and early '60s, he delivered his points -- and his devastating hip checks -- with a coal miner's demeanor and discipline. When the good times finally arrived, he helped to manage the egos within, and likewise helped deliver a common touch to a city enthralled with, if not delirious over, what was perhaps Boston's most endearing team of the 20th century.
The Hockey Hall of fame offers a Bucyk treasure chest and tribute video.
