Flower and Brooks look like HS kids. Billy Guerin with the classic turtleneck. :P

Personally, I thought the side-by-side stuff was awesome. Shows you how young these guys really were when they came into the league. Literally kids.

I feel like Kunitz's head stayed the same size but his face grew.

They need a picture of Vokoun from his Wheeling days versus his picture from Nashville.

Is it really a surprise that Niskanen sometimes looks a little lost out there? Despite his hard shot, that is.

Are they sure that's a picture of Neal and not his dorky cousin??

Also, CFA looks really old/tired when that particular picture is placed next to his younger pic.

Holy hell Brandon Sutter looked like he was 12.

And Reirden looked like Robert Downey Jr. with a receding hairline.

The current picture of Scuderi looks like a Mortal Kombat picture from the character select screen

Scuds looks like a completely different person. His first picture looks more like Jordan Staal. Or Zordon.

Sutter and Geno from their youth pics look like cousins or something.

Vokoun could be a thug from either a Die Hard movie (first one) or any Jason Statham flick.

Brooks Orpik looks like he should be slamming down Nattys in the basement of a frat house.

Kunitz looks terrible back in 05 and Letang looks like a hipster...dude seriously needs to cut his hair and shave a little bit.

That is the difference between a player playing for the next paycheck and a player being handed a life of no monetary worries. CFA has and always will play for a paycheck and that will wear on you.

Why wouldn't they let Granato wear a helmet that fit him? That seems pretty mean of LA.

Is that a post or pre concussion Granato?
