It was a terrific article, well worth anyone's time.

My condolences also to the Burke family, just a bloody tragedy. RIP.

It was a good aritcle. It was well recived. We will never know what could have been. the kid wanted to work in some capaticity in Hockey, he could have been the Harvey Milk of sports.

man, why can't life be like our great sport. everything get's completely f'd. well, you go home, shower and eat, come back to the rink tomorrow, and have another go at it.

reading the whole coming-out story, this kid sure was brave, and our society has come soo damn far so quickly, despite all the people that insist we're losing our humanity.

it's true, to whomever said it earlier. we really do forget this guys are human. outside of being a GM, brian burke was proud of his son, and in a macho-centric culture like north american sports, it was awesome to see how proud of his son he was, and how well liked and accepted that kid was.

i lost my best friend in the world to a car accident, and you cannot imagine how senseless and sudden that feels. the agony of wondering how terrible his death may've been, and the millions of times you wonder if you just made a call, or did anything, maybe he wouldn't have been driving at that moment.

My heart goes out to the burke's, and i wish them peace in their loss. Burke's got one of the toughest characters in this game, and on the inside i'm sure there's just so much sorrow.

I lost my mom suddenly over 10 years ago, and when you lose someone who is your glue and is one of the most important people in your life, you lose a piece of you that day.

But losing a child has to be the worst thing to ever happen to someone, and my heart goes out this kid's parents. Hockey, nor any other job, even comes close to being a parent.

Heartbreaking news. So sad to see someone so young go out like that. Quality kid too. Poor Burkie and his family.

RIP

Yeah I opened up nhl.com this morning to check how Kovalchuk did in his first game, and as soon as I saw the article I forgot all about it so I could read that instead. Really, really sad.

CONGRATS ...a new Ranger fan!...I know raising a kid to be a Rangers fan is borderline child abuse...but my kids seem to be dealing with it ok.

Wow this is heartbreaking.... thoughts are certainly with their family.

That article was also an incredible story to read, I too have a completely new perspective on Brian Burke, the Leafs, and hockey in general.

His death is a tragedy and it really hits home for me as a 20 year old to think that life can be taken just like that.
