A Flyer I always hated, but respected.

Oh, shit...that's incredibly bad news. I thought he was a talented player. I just wish his career with the Leafs lasted longer.

I loved that he stayed involved in hockey after retiring, giving back to a sport that gave him so much.

RIP, Peter.




I love this town!

I was reading on his Wikipedia entry that when he was playing with Vancouver, he requested a trade to an Eastern conference team so that he could be closer to his niece, who was going through a very serious illness, and her family in Toronto. The team traded him to Anaheim, which was geographically the furthest place from Toronto in the NHL, which caused him to retire.

You have to admire someone who puts his family above his career like that. Hope the GM or owner who made that decision feels plenty guilty now.

My first guess turned out to be correct: Brian Burke

I'm surprised as well. However, he made the most of his time because he still got about 5:30 of ice time less than what he was averaging with the Caps. You won't hear me complaining though...
