Still one of my all-time favorite goal celebrations. It's the antithesis of the football player catching a TD, turning to the stands and pointing to the name on the back of his jersey. Those were the dark years (look at the names on the jerseys in the celebration... Buchberger, Focht,
) and it was a statement to those of us that were with the team throughout. I always took it as not necessarily that he wanted to be here, but that he was here, as were his teammates, as were the fans.... and to remember the organization had a rich history.
I won't say I always liked Morozov, because there were probably more games where I cursed him than celebrated him, but I can't say I was glad to see him go. He falls just below Lang (Fritz, Helmut) in my ex-Pen likability.
