This sucks. I always looked forward to his pre-draft videos the past couple of years. You could get a good gauge on a lot of prospects from them.

R.I.P. EJ. Still way too young to pass away.

Cancer really is a *****. Let's find a cure for it already, eh?

I think Pierre McGuire would be a good guy for that job, as would Bob McKenzie. I'd lean more towards Pierre because I think Bob is way more useful in many other capacities, mainly being the most credible hockey reporter out there.

FU, cancer. 58 is way too young. Hopefully not something he did to himself with smoking, but either way it sucks.

Pierre does seem to know a ton about young players coming up in the draft, even if he does annoy the hell out of me sometimes on TV broadcasts... so not a bad pick.

Jeez I didn't even know he had cancer. Pretty big loss in the world of hockey.

Tough to hear. This guy knew his prospects and he is excellent at talent analysis. I watch his videos before the draft to here comparisons/features of players who I want the Guins to draft.

Sad day for hockey...
