One 1967 Magazine's Predictions for Hockey in the Year 2000 Were Hilariously Wrong

zxh95XU

According to one unearthed magazine from 1967, hockey fans expected a lot more innovation by the year 2000 than they actually got. Here is a partial list of The Telegraph's George Gross' predictions:

  • The Copenhagen Vikings beat the Leafs in the Cup Finals
  • Ice will have been replaced as a playing surface twice over: first by plastic, then by a "molecular phenomenon."
  • Belly-dancers
  • Flying referees

Not quite as prophetic as Sadaharu Oh predicting baseball in the year 2000 will be all about offense. Though he was right about one thing: the Maple Leafs have about as good a shot at the Stanley Cup as the Copenhagen Vikings.
