Precisely. The Toe Blake quote to me is the final nail in the coffin. How do you get better than a 1st hand account of a HOF player/coach directly refuting the stereotype we've all had in our heads? In my bio there is more than enough evidence to suggest he was anything but slow, at least in Montreal. And while he certainly seemed to slow down in Boston and beyond, he was 30ish by that point. Most players slow down considerably once they hit that age/period.
