John Vanbiesbrouck has stepped down from his dual role as coach and general manager of the Ontario Hockey League's Soo Greyhounds after admitting using the "N-word" in reference to one of his players Sunday night.

Vanbiesbrouck, a former standout goaltender with the New York Rangers, Florida Panthers and Philadelphia Flyers, used a derogatory racial slur to describe team captain Trevor Daley.

Vanbiesbrouck, a devout Christian, also told the network that he does not consider himself to be racist.

Vanbiesbrouck, also a part-owner of the Greyhounds, told MCTV he asked for Daley's forgiveness, but Daley said no. Daley left the team on Saturday afternoon and reportedly has no plans to return.

DAMN. I was a big-time mark for Beezer, I actually still have a t-shirt of him, and it ain't easy to find t-shirts of hockey players in America beyond the big stars. I went to the first game where he came back to MSG with the Panthers and cheered like crazy for him. I hate to think that he's a racist, but reading this story he's at best very, very insensitive. What a shame.

What I REALLY don't understand about all this, apart from the story as a whole...

...is that the kid was ON BEEZER'S TEAM!!! Not a rival player, a kid from your own squad. Unreal...

Krushelnyski RULED. Hall of Fame worthy? Maybe. (569 points in 879 NHL games). Looking back to old Flames teams, there were so many players that should/will be inducted into the Hall: Kent Nilsson (686 points in 553 games)
