Gordie Howe was one of the best hockey players in the history of the game. Scotty Bowman, a former Detroit Red Wings coach, described him this way:
“I pick Gordie as my No. 1 all-time player. He played the longest. He was the toughest player of his era. He was the best offensive player and defensively he was used in all situations. He could play center, right wing, and defense. He could shoot right and he could shoot left. If you could make a mold for a hockey player it would be him. I never thought there was another player close to him.”
