Alexandre Picard...take 3

There is the make believe Picard, Jean-Luc , of Star Trek

Then there is the famous old Parisian French family that pre-dates the "French Revolution".

There was also a strain of English Picards from Edenburg and the battle of Hastings, these two families came together to produce Emil Picard, a world class mathmatician, who gave us the Algebraic Geometry for "Elasticity".

This brings us to the Picards of Quebec, who were lumber jacks and "Coureur de bois"...big tough men with the Picard brain.

There has been one or more Picards playing in the National Hockey League since the 1920s, all good big men, smart, tough, powerfull.

Lets keep ours!
