A sad day in Montreal

Hockey people were out in force at Mary Queen of the World, saying goodbye to Pat Burns.

• Red Fisher on a “great guy, great man”

Pat Hickey on the selectors who kept Burns out of the HoF

Arpon Basu’s take on the funeral

A cop, a coach

• Hickey on the excellence of Tomas Plekanec and JT on her fave rave as a Selke candidate

• François Gagnon looks ahead to Oilers, Devils and on Mike Cammalleri’s slump

Carey Price paces goaltenders in AS voting

• Nice feature on Steven Stamkos

And because life shouldn’t be sad, a Leslie Nielsen compilation



  1. Danno says:

    Surely you don’t mean Shirley deserves a tribute? You mean Leslie does!


    “Hey Richard, two minutes for looking so good!”

  2. Julie H says:

    Today is an even sadder day. Just read that Pat Burns widow’s car was robbed. Tons of their possessions were stolen after some jerk broke the car windows. How awful

    “I know you’re wise beyond your years, but do you ever get the fear that your perfect verse is just a lie you tell yourself to help you get by?”

    Simply another means by the NHL for fans to become involved in voting for their favorite players.


    Go Habs Go!

  4. B says:

    Write-in Avery has more votes than players like D.Sedin, St.Louis and B.Richards. Paul Bissonnette a Phoenix goon write-in who has not even had 1 hour in total TOI this season has more votes than guys like Alfredsson and M.Koivu. Not to take anything away from Price’s great start this season, but the

    NHL All-Star on-line balloting is a box stuffing joke.

  5. rocketsglare says:

    Shame on the NHL that Carey is a write-in for selection to the All Star Game. But his lead among the

    goaltenders is vindication of the type of season he is having. Props to Carey and to all those fans who

    have voted for him.


    Go Price Go!

    Go Habs Go!


  6. rocketsglare says:

    The Leslie Nielsen compilation was hilarious. He will definitely be missed.


    Go Habs Go!

  7. Philly-Poo says:

    Yes to the Leslie Neilson tribute, just don’t call him Shirley…

  8. Bugs says:

    Nice piece on Cammy. The guy is startin to snap!

    Tragically misunderstood, please bite
