I was just going to say… 

 

Believe or not there are a bunch of sickos on this forum who predict celebrity deaths in a white noise game … but say not getting the vaccine is murder.

 

Have some respect for someones passing and please leave the tasteless and classless remarks elsewhere.

 

So that's what this is really about..

Before his team hit the ice for the opening faceoff of every game of their seven-game first-round Stanley Cup playoff thriller versus the Calgary Flames, Vancouver Canucks head coach Bob McCammon and his assistants Jack McIlhargey and Mike Murphy would tell their team a joke.

The players would be left in stitches.

Some coaches went for fire and brimstone motivational speeches. McCammon, clearly, went the other way.

I loved McCammon as a coach. He was here at the start of the Pat Quinn era and the Canucks were starting to show up consistently and were playing exciting hockey, maybe a bit like they were in the last couiple weeks.

 

I still remember the run from the 1988-89 season when they had a 7 game winning streak and Trevor Linden was a rookie, they made the playoffs and there was a lot of hope for Canucks fans.

 

I always thought of McCammon as a great tactician and smart hockey man...... I'm greatful for the memories and wish all the best for his family.
