Bobby Hull and Yvan Cournoyer share a joke...

The Sunday Star Sports section has a funny profile on Bobby Hull, Stan Makita and the renaissance of the Chicago Blackhawks, it includes this gem:

"(Former Montreal Canadien) Yvan Cournoyer called me a couple of days ago," says Hull, an ambassador for the Hawk franchise where he built a legacy over 15 seasons between the 1950s and ’70s. 

"He said, ‘I'm just calling to wish you good luck against those goddamn Flyers,' " Hull says with a respectable French Canadian accent for effect.

It seems Cournoyer and Hull, one-time arch-rivals and skilled practitioners of the game, share a distaste for Philadelphia’s brand of Broad Street Bully hockey renowned more for its thuggery than its on-ice majesty.

"I said, ‘We’ll do our best Yvan’ and I told him I haven’t liked that team since ’67.’ "

Hull switches back to a heavy French accent for the punchline.
"Bobby, I no like ’em since I was born."
