RIP, thoughts to the family and friends.

 

Really amazing what he accomplished in his life - Olympic Bronze, raised one of the NHL's all time greats, raised another son who was a pro baseball player and later a photographer like him, grandsons already making their own accomplishments, and he had a sports photographer's portfolio for the ages.

 

Reading the TSN article, you also get the sense of how well liked and respected he was by his colleagues.

RIP Denis.  Peace to your family.

 

From what I read, Marty wouldn't have made it to Montreal in time.  Having been through that, I wish Marty strength and peace.

Not many dads get first interview after their son wins the Stanley Cup. Well not many are Denis Brodeur.

If the Devils do something to honor him on opening night, I believe a DE-NIS chant is in store.

If the Devils do something or not, that be an awesome chant to honour Brodeur, his dad, and the rest of his family.

Why are we always so blase about the death of people we don't know personally? I mean, I want to wish RIP as much as anyone but at the same time we shouldn't introduce these threads as "action news" type things. A little more delicacy rather than throwing out anything just to be "first", that's all I'm saying.

Having just lost my Nan , who was of a similar age and in similar cirumstances (my cousin flew back from Australia to try and make it back in time but couldn't, Nan had cancer) i really sympathise with what the Brodeur family are going through.

 

R.I.P Denis, you will be missed by many , many people.

He lived a blessed life. He took some of the most iconic images in hockey history (the Henderson goal, that was Denis Brodeur) he birthed one of the greatest goalies ever. He lived to see his grandson drafted.
