Pat Quinn will be missed by anyone who knew him. The last time I saw him, about a year ago, it seemed to me he looked a bit under the weather. Quinn wasn't a super star but he was big and fearless and he was a defenseman that opposing forwards respected.

RIP Pat...

A very sad day for the beautiful sport of hockey as two other gems of the game passed on:


former North Stars Murray Oliver:


Ex-North Star Murray Oliver dies at 77 | Star Tribune





and Russian coach Tikhonov:


Soviet hockey coach Viktor Tikhonov, whose teams won 3 Olympic gold medals, dies at 84 | Star Tribune





RIP to all three.

I remember back in the mid 80's sometime I was down deep in the Chiapas Highlands in southern Mexico and Pat Quinn was coach of the LA Kings but hockey news was thin in what media that existed-months later when I surfaced he was President & GM of the Canucks!

Too bad. One of the few good players on the Leafs when he played for them.

Not sure, on the news just before noon as I recall.


I just searched the I/N for it and have come to the conclusion it was probably something printed in haste and removed in haste.

In liked both Pat Quinn and Pat Burns as head coaches of the Toronto Maple Leafs. They were both taken far too soon.


Rest in peace.
