Leafs GM Burke's son dies
As Oiler fans, we've had our differences with you when it comes to hockey, What you're going through now, as a father myself, I cannot and do not want to even imagine. My thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family. It gives us perspective as to what is truly important in our lives. Hockey though, is a close 2nd to family.

My heartfelt sympathy and thoughts go out to you at this tragic, sad time. As a father, a high-school teacher, and a coach, I was so moved by the courage Brendan displayed in opening up to the world, and so proud to see how he did so with the love and support of his father and family. You are all in the thoughts of this life-long Vancouverite, Canuck fan, and proud Canadian. Unfortunately, grief knows no boundaries of country nor loyalty. Thankfully, neither does love. Pax.

Me deepest condolences. I can't imagine losing a child and one you're so close to. My prayers are out to you and your family at this sad moment.
I know the boys are out there to win one for you tonight and may they do it against my team.
