Pat Burns not Dead at 58
Being reported that NHL coach Pat Burns has passed away from a long battle with cancer. Very sad news.

good to see the coach still has a sense of humour...



In contrast to several erroneous reports earlier in the day, former NHL head coach Pat Burns is alive,

Burns phoned TSN on Friday.

"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."

A report on Thursday suggested that Burns' condition had taken a turn for the worse.

The 58-year old has returned home to Magog, Quebec to be with his family.

Legend, in so many ways

I think any reporter who gets their information off Twitter should be fired. How many times someone misreport a death due to Twitter.

And Burns keep on fighting. I admire the courage
