John Madden retires, joins Canadiens' scouting staff

I know it has been mentioned in a thread that I saw, but I felt that Mad Dog deserved his own thread on here. Obviously from where I derived my user name, Madden was one of my favorite players when he came up. He was simply the most intense, driven player on either team any given night. Whatever you asked of him he would do. And whether he had just taken a stick or a puck to the face, he'd put on a visor or get stitched up and be right back out as soon as possible.

I have many great memories of Mad Dog as a Devil, but this one is my favorite.



This picture that I have in my office of him after his 2nd Stanley Cup win defines the passion, energy, toughness and will to win in one simple picture. I'll never forget that scar he got in Game 5 (I believe), it just goes to show you the drive that he had as a player to win. It's what made him the warrior he was throughout his NHL career.

Good luck in your new gig, Mad Dog. You'll always be a Devil first and foremost.
