NHL hockey -- particularly historical questions. I have a fairly in depth knowledge of the Montreal Canadiens and Vancouver Canucks, but have access to a number of books on the history of hockey. I`m an ardent fan of the game and being Canadian, I have some natural talent for talking hockey. I would certainly be able to answer any general topics about hockey, explain icing, what`s offside, how thick is a puck, kind of questions.
