Pat Burns Takes Turn for worse

Recommended Posts

He is still alive:

Report retracted, former Devils coach Pat Burns has not died

CTV in Ottawa retracted an earlier story, which said that former Devils coach Pat Burns had died today following a long battle with lung cancer.

CTV said had “erroneous information” and now says it has “nothing to report about his medical condition at this time.”

Burns, who coached the Devils to the 2003 Stanley Cup, stepped down as coach after the 2003-04 season when he was diagnosed with colon cancer. A year later he was.diagnosed with liver cancer.

He has been working since then as a special assignment scout for the Devils.

Totally agree. I hope he's somehow able to beat this. Really a shame for a guy so young.

Pat Burns = Jesus. Back from the dead.

But wow...talk about not doing your research. Always classy to declare someone dead before they actually are. :doh1:

Wow, that is just wrong to screw something up like that. All in all I am not surprised though...the media can't get much right these days.

This reminds me of when DiMaggio found out he was dead because he and his brother saw it on the news. How do people still not check their sources on this stuff?

It seems like "reporting" these days means "making complete guesses and hoping they turn out to be right so you can say you were first."

Glad to see Coach Burns is still alive. Full report on what Coach Burns said to TSN Bob McKenzie....

BURNS REFUTES REPORTS TO TSN THAT HE HAS PASSED AWAY

"Here we go again," said the three-time NHL coach of the year. "They're trying to kill me before I'm dead. I come to Quebec to spend some time with my family and they say I'm dead. I'm not dead, far (expletive) from it. They've had me dead since June. Tell them I'm alive. Set them straight."
