I read a post regarding Pat Burns on this site. The Devils need to go 1 step further and give Pat the tribute he deserves by placing a salute to him in the rafters of the building along side Danyko and Stevens. This should be done ASAP.

Walking on eggshells, I disagree. I won't really defend that much, cause I don't want to sound offensive.

I do feel awful about Pat Burns though, and this was a good article I googled up when thinking about it: http://www.thestar.c.../article/575227


edit: Disagree of a tribute in the rafters next to Stevens and Dano... I of course have no issues with a plaque or a statue, etc.

Again, being politically incorrect I disagree. He coached here for 2 years, one year we won it. I respect him tremendously for his fight against cancer but I'd rather be a banner hung to support the fight against cancer then to honor Burns.

Bingo... cancer or NOT... you can't "Ray Bourque" Burnsie.... he was an awesome coach... if you want to do a Hockey Fights Cancer night and honor him... that's different

Jacques Lemaire is the ONLY coach so far who deserves any kind of banner... he's the #1 reason this franchise got righted!

Pay homage to the INCREDIBLE scoring goalie!!!! :-)

I saw CRASHER trip a kid on skates and then he stole the kids lunch money and slapped his mom when she came to pick him up.. All because the kid looked at his crease

2003-04 NJDevs.com winner of the Masterton Award for Dedication to the Devils(still proud of that one !)

4, Four (!?!?) Time (2005-2008) NJDevs.com winner of the Whoever the damn Award for the funniest poster in the land is named after...(geesh... post pressure, but I seem ok with it!)
TWO TIME (2005, 2006) Award Winner and the man who can show Jeremy Roenick what a REAL loudmouth is all about.... hell this mouth roars SO loud, they retired the DAMN AWARD!!!! But how do you be emotional about an award for being most emotional when you're sharing it?

2008 NJDevs Stanley Cup Winner for best overall poster... where's my damn ring?

Just out of curiosity. Did he smoke or drink excessively? I hate cancer.

Burns was a smoker as he smoked cigarettes and cigars. Not sure if he was a drinker, so maybe an occasional drinker. :noclue:

I would definately agree with a night for Burns and a plaque dedication to him somewhere in the arena.

No banner needs to be raised for Burnsie, but I would love to see a Pat Burns Night. Nothing too crazy. Something along the lines of what they did for Doc this season. It would be a great gesture to extend toward someone who squeezed a Stanley Cup out of a roster that had little-to-no business winning one. Hell of a coach.
