Former NHL player, coach and executive Pat Quinn dies at age 71: Pat Quinn was a man known for his direct manner whether it was flattening Bobby Orr on the ice with one of the most famous body checks in NHL history or dealing with players, reporters and fellow executives in a long career as a coach, general manager and president.

Fairly vague as to the illness he was battling, is there more information I wonder?

Anyway, the game has lost one of the more influential hockey minds/personalities to have lived in my lifetime.

Quinn and Tikhonov in the same day?

The hockey afterlife just got a little more hard-ass than yesterday.

I always thought Pat Quinn was indestructible. I guess not. Love him or hate him, he was a giant of the game. RIP.
