On Pat Burns...

Pat Burns has apparently taken a turn for the worse. I can't say that I will miss Pat, having never met him. I can say that I will never forget him. His career as head coach spanned 14 years with 4 teams, tallying 501 wins, 2 shots at the mug, winning it once with the Devils in 2003.

Pat is known to be a fiesty character, this former cop-turn-coach has been a fighter all his life. Pat fought cancer 3 times dating back to 2004, the last, lung cancer, sadly incurable.

"I know my life is nearing its end and I accept that." - Pat Burns w/Rosie DiManno, Apr. 9, 2010, Toronto Star. A great read, that article.

May you know peace.

  1. Sad that at this time, the media has erred and put out reports that Pat Burns has passed. He has not, and I don't know how any reputable agency reports that someone has died that has clearly not.
