RIP Pat Burns

Posted in NHL Hockey  by Sportsbook Bonus on November 22nd, 2010

Pat Burns, who died of lung cancer Friday at 58 after fighting several forms of the disease, will be remembered for much more than the 501 wins he recorded while coaching Montreal, Toronto, Boston and New Jersey.

Burns was an outstanding defensive coach and a difference-maker whose gruff exterior didn’t hide his intelligence and insight. The former police officer wore his authority well, using it to mold kids into men and men into better men. For his success, he became the only person voted the NHL’s coach of the year three times, and with three different teams.
