not the same Ace Bailey...

you are thinking of the guy killed on 9/11 aboard one of the planes that crashed into the WTC, that was Garnet "Ace" Bailey, who played for the Bruins, Red Wings, Blues and Caps in the 60s and 70s...the Ace Bailey who had his number retired by the leafs was born in 1903 and died in 1992.
