So on Wikipedia, I've noticed that while the NFL has it's own page dedicated to lore, the NHL doesn't have an equivalent.

I'm thinking of starting one (or if any of you motivators wants to beat me to it, feel free. I have finals coming up, so I can't get to it right away anyway). It can work the same way as the NFL page-quick paragraphs on the lore, linking to an appropriate page (if it exists) regarding it.

Here is what I've thought up so far. I'm sure that not all instances will be considered noteworthy enough, but we can build off of this list.

So please think of lore from all over the league that would make a good part of this list. We definitely need more major brawls and epic goals. I'm thinking that tragedies MAY not belong? Give your recommendations as to what warrants inclusion in a potential article, and what doesn't.

This can also become a thread for discussing general NHL lore, even if not deemed eligible for an entry on the page. If we even create a page anyway.

Oops, Steve Smith's own goal was in 1986, not '87. And I need to learn how to spell Matteau's name.

Pretty cool idea, and a fun list to read.
Great minds discuss ideas. Average minds discuss events. Small minds discuss people.
