John Ferguson dead of cancer. NHL tough guy had heart of lion: He was a feared fighter, but more than anything else, he was a player. His teammates knew it and admired him greatly for it. Canadiens fans knew it and loved him for it.

Oh, how I hated him whenever he took the ice against the Bruins, but oh, how I grudgingly appreciated what he brought onto that ice. There were few like him, and I'm afraid there will be no more. No one else could have written that article but Red Fisher. It is a beautiful piece of work; everything a eulogy should be. It brought laughter through my sense of loss.
