One of the greatest ever to lace them up, and an amazing human being off the ice according to anyone I've heard asked. Cancer sucks. RIP Blonde Demon.

The hockey world lost Mike Bossy last week. Both of them died relatively young and were heavy smokers. If you smoke, please quit now. Believe me, if I can do it, you can as well.

Remember seeing The Flower play against the original Jets waaaay back in the early 1980's. He got a rare penalty that game and I watched as he went to the box. Took off his gloves and actually had a smoke while there. Also remember the Habs crushed the Jets and he was a big factor before and after.
