Another one bites the dust

The primary goal of this site is to provide mature, meaningful discussion about the Vancouver Canucks. However, we all need a break some time so this forum is basically for anything off-topic, off the wall, or to just get something off your chest! This forum is named after poster Creeper, who passed away in July of 2011 and was a long time member of the Canucks message board community.

Winnipeg Jets legend Dale Hawerchuk dies at 57 after battle with cancer

https://www.sportsnet.ca/hockey/nhl/win ... le-cancer/
Dale Hawerchuk, a hockey phenom who became the face of the Winnipeg Jets en route to the Hall of Fame, has died at the age of 57 after a battle with cancer.

The Ontario Hockey League’s Barrie Colts, a team Hawerchuk coached, confirmed the death on Twitter on Tuesday.

"After an incredibly brave and difficult battle with cancer, our dad has passed away. My family is so proud of him and the way he fought. #HawerchukStrong," Eric Hawerchuk, one of Dale’s sons, wrote on Twitter.

A teenage star, Hawerchuk was drafted first overall by the Jets in 1981. He went on to play nine seasons in Winnipeg and five in Buffalo before finishing up his distinguished 16-year NHL career with stints in St. Louis and Philadelphia.

Hawerchuk recorded 518 goals and 1,409 points in 1,188 regular-season games (he added 30 more goals and 99 assists in 97 playoff games).

"A low-maintenance superstar," said Craig Heisinger, Winnipeg’s senior vice-president and director of hockey operations.

A long time ago, a baseball player remarked: "If I owned a ballclub, I'd hire a $5,000 coach and a $15,000 scout."

Agreed, she was a remarkable woman.

But apparently many of her leftist followers don't share our sentiments.

A truly remarkable person that will be sorely missed. :(

But her followers need not worry, Moscow Mitch has earlier been very clear in expressing his conviction that there should be no appointments to the Supreme Court in an election year; that the voters must have their say. I’m sure he will stay firm on this.
