RIP, Mansbreek.

NEW YORK (November 19, 2010)—National Hockey League Commissioner Gary Bettman today issued the following statement on the passing of longtime NHL head coach Pat Burns:

      “Just as they will remember Pat for his success as a coach, hockey fans also will remember his humor, his honesty, his humanity and his courage. As it mourns the loss of an outstanding contributor to the game, the National Hockey League sends heartfelt condolences to Pat’s family and friends.”

what a joke they didn’t induct this guy into the hall while they had the chance for him to know about it. it seems obvious that he’s going to get in someday and with a terminal disease… like it really would have been that big of deal to push him to the top of the pile, even if it wasn’t quite his turn yet. No offense to Jimmy D, but Burns should have got it this year.

RIP.

Fuch cancer.

The Mansbreek story Mckenzie ran a couple of months back was phenomenal, absolutely loved it.  Agree with perfection that Burnsie should have gone in this year but as he was known for saying “it is what it is”.

RIP Mansbreek.
