A real loss - he could have made a great coach.

RIP, Bob - you made hockey fights an art.

Probert/Clark and Probert/Domi were classics. I was shocked to hear the news on the way home from work.

Growing up, after Yzerman, Probie was my guy. I was big on collecting tapes back then and aside from wrestling stuff, Probert fights were my next biggest collection. It's sad to see him go this early, but he had a troubled life.

RIP Probie. You will be missed.

Man, on a boat, what a horrible way to go, not even close to being able to get to help.

RIP Tough Guy.

ESPN has been reporting that he collapsed on a boat in "Ontario, Canada".

Thanks for narrowing it down for me, guys.

I woke up at about 12:30, turned in the local ESPN station to see if I could find out who won the fight and was shocked (SHOCKED!) to hear that the game was still on. Here's my question. Did the game stay on ABC or did they switch it over to ESPN?
