Guy Lafleur
Claim to fame: Montreal Canadians right-winger, was Montreal's first round draft pick (and first overall) in 1971. It turned out to be a good one, Guy became the first player in NHL history to score 50 goals in a season 6 seasons in a row. in 77-78 he scored 60. Career-wise he got 568 regular season goals and 793 assists and won the Stanley Cup 5 times with the Habs. He is one of the few athletes of this calibre (possibly the only one) who was a chain-smoker.
Guy was elected into Hall of Fame - 1988

Where are they now? After a 3 season come back at 38 in 1988 and played a season with the New York Rangers and then two more with the Quebec Nordiques.
He still acts as an "ambassador" for the Montreal Canadians, he operates a helicopter business in Montreal flying executives from the airport to downtown Montreal.

Update June/05: He is still running a business flying helicopters but he now has a Mike's Submarine franchise in Berthierville some 45 kms from Montreal. (See URL below, french language)

OHW: "Groove is in the Heart", 1990. Very big, very catchy hit, Deee-lite was a quirky dance band who was often mistakenly believed to be the stage name of the singer, Lady Kier...

She played Daisy Duke on that idiotic show "Dukes of Hazzard". Born on March 1st, 1954 - the same say as Ron Howard.
