Memories Of Red Fisher

from Dave Stubbs of NHL.com,

One of the greatest and most respected observers of hockey the game has ever known died Friday at age 91. There isn't a player Red covered, an owner or general manager whose team he was around, or reader who absorbed his every typed or broadcast word who doesn't have a memory or a story to share.

For a few years at the Montreal Gazette, Red was my sports editor. For a few years, our roles would be reversed.

As crusty as he forever tried to make himself look, this is the Red Fisher I knew:

In many long talks, plumbing his reservoir of stories, I gained a great love of hockey history that I bring to many features about the game of yesterday.

Pierre McGuire Diagnosed With Prostate Cancer

from Kevin Allen of USA TODAY,

NBC analyst Pierre McGuire remembers the late Hall of Fame coach Pat Burns imploring him and others in the hockey coaching community to schedule regular colonoscopies. Now he will be the guy reminding coaches of the importance of prostate exams.

The announcement that McGuire has been diagnosed with prostate cancer was made before NBC Sports Network's "Wednesday Night Rivalry" game between the Minnesota Wild and Chicago Blackhawks.

“I had no symptoms at all,” McGuire, 56, told USA TODAY Sports. “If I wouldn’t have had a physical, I would have kept going and I never would have known, because nothing was bothering me.”

Spinning Tales With Ron MacLean

from Keenan Sorokan of PostMedia,

Chatting with MacLean is as easy as sitting down and catching up with an old friend. He speaks with an ease that would relax the most anxious person and recounts past experiences like you were standing right beside him when it happened. With MacLean continuing his hosting duties of Roger’s Hometown Hockey in Spruce Grove last week, he was able to provide more of those timeless stories from the sport that binds this country.

Like a quick bit of trivia that hit him while watching a San Jose Sharks and Vancouver Canucks game a few weeks ago.

“The crazy six degrees of separation when we do this show,” he said of recent experiences on the show. “Every town we had just visited was represented in the game. The crazier story is that Joe Thornton is from St. Thomas (Ont.) and he’s known as Jumbo Joe. That’s a bit of homage to Jumbo The Elephant, who was killed on the train tracks in St. Thomas in 1885. Well, a week later we’re in Oakville, Ont. doing Hometown Hockey and the kid who picks the three stars for us, his great, great, great grandfather was the conductor on the train that killed Jumbo The Elephant. That’s just how it goes on that Hometown series.”
