Pat Burns refutes reports of demise

Posted this on the Leafs board, thought you guys would be interested...


Reports out right now that the health of Pat Burns has taken a turn for the worse.

The QMI Agency report says he's returned home to Magog, Quebec along with his family.

The report suggests he may only have days left.

Wishing Pat the best. In a way, I just want his suffering to finally end but I don't want him gone either. It's just a real sad situation.

God Bless.

Good luck Pat!

Once again, what on earth were the Hall of Fame voters thinking when they didn't elect Pat last time through?

We all know this would happen eventually, yet I still refuse to believe it. God bless you Pat and your family.

I hear you there. I lost my father to cancer last month and it is a horrible way to die. Depending on what medication he's on right now it may be better for him to go. They put you on some strong stuff and you don't always have all of your wits about you. As much as it will suck to see Pat go (It will open up a very fresh wound for me as well) it will probably be for the better because he won't be suffering anymore.

One thing I said when my father passed is no matter how prepared you are it's NEVER easy.

An excellent question. HoF really dropped the ball last time around, because it's a very good chance that Pat won't be alive the next time there are HoF inductions.

Didn't know Gionta was that close to him....if in the end it comes to that, might as well make it official so Pat has some great news to hear about before it ends...

Bob Hartley is all fun and great to hear in the morning....but it will never be like it was when Burns was there.

I just lost one of my aunt. Will lose my father in, at best, 1 year due to cancer. So I know what his family is going through. I just hope it goes down the most possible human way.

It makes no sense. The guy will have been introduced anyway. Makes me thought of the Geoffrion retirement jersey ceremony....one of the most touching ceremony that should not have been that touching if it would have been retired much earlier like it should have been. At least, we didn't make the same mistake with Bouchard.

But it's too late in Pat case. Pretty sad.

All the best to Pat and his family. He was a great coach, great man, and by very far my favorite hockey analyst when he was on the radio.

His courage through all this has truly been admirable. This is so sad, but hopefully it will come to as best a conclusion as possible in the circumstances for him.

As for the HoF thing, it's just dumb. But what can you do now...

The hockey world has been behind Pat over the last few years, and if this is the end, you have to admire how he has handled it, and how he has tried to stay involved in the game. It serves as a great lesson for us all.

A terrific coach, who coached the first Habs teams that I grew up watching. I'll never forget.
