Are we sure this time?

Rest in peace ... you were a warrior

charms 11-19-2010 05:06 PM

So far, it's only been reported here: http://www.ruefrontenac.com/sports/h...s-cancer-deces...

Des Louise 11-19-2010 05:08 PM

Well he should have been inducted before that happened.

My condolences to everyone that was close to him.

Site seems broken.

RIP PAT. Just saw it on local news in TVA Sherbrooke. He was at La maison Aube lumière en phase terminale in Sherbrooke since about 2 weeks near my job.

This is a very sad day in hockey. R.I.P. Pat.

The way that you fought cancer shows that you were the epitome of a warrior.

Pat Burns' son isn't confirming his father's death. He said the news circulating right now of his dad passing doesn't come from the family.

And given that the source is ruefrontenac, and there's no other source that can validate this at this moment in time all I can say is this is ********.

RDS just confirmed it at RIS. Chantal Machabe is crying live.

Clumsyhab 11-19-2010 05:26 PM

RDS now confirming it.

Analyzer* 11-19-2010 05:27 PM



The New Jersey Devils have confirmed Pat Burns passed away today in Sherbrooke .

CanadaIsHockey 11-19-2010 05:29 PM

Since RDS is reporting it.... now i'm sad :(

I really had high hopes it wasn't true.

RIP Pat Burns, God bless the family and your soul

One of the great coaches of all time. Four teams, four contenders. And clearly a great, inspirational person.

Toro 11-19-2010 05:29 PM

RIP Pat, we all loved your passion and leadership. Great coach, great person.

Same here, when I started watching Hockey, he was the Habs coach. He will have a great ceremony tomorrow when Habs play Leafs.

subbanged 11-19-2010 05:34 PM

RIP pat

HabsoluteFate 11-19-2010 05:36 PM


too bad the hockey hall of fame is a bunch of idiots and never included him in there...its not like he never deserved it and eventually he will get in there...would have been nice while he was alive.
