Let me start this off by offering my condolences, and those of everyone here at Hockey Wilderness, to the Burns family. After a long battle with cancer, and more than one false report of his death, legendary coach Pat Burns died yesterday. He was, and is, a huge name in the hockey community and his presence will certainly be missed. Rest in peace, sir. You earned it.
As for the Walk today, mostly game related stuff, but plenty of other goodies, too. Make sure you stop by Facebook for the Question of the Day, and head over and donate to the Hockey Wilderness Movember team. That seems really tacky asking you to do that with the lead paragraph on this post, and I apologize for that. It's a good cause, though, so do it up.
