Brutal. He was at the Leafs game so recently I didn't think it would be this sudden. Feel bad for him and his family. What an awful disease.

RIP to one of our real legends. He was before my time but the way people like my dad talked about him was all I needed to know.
I wish to hell I'd never said "Winning isn't everything it's the only thing". What I believe is, if you go out on a football field, or any endeavour in life, and you leave every fibre of what you have on the field, then you've won.

RIP Borje, you are my all time favourite Leaf. I am happy you lived long enough to be honoured at your second home, it was a few nights I will never forget.

Incredibly sad. Really glad he got to get to the game the other night. And I'm sure his family will also be thankful of that memory.

So nice that he got a last hurrah.

It's just as well that he didn't have to suffer any more.

As the good book says, we know neither the day, nor the hour.

I'm not an emotional guy, but I must admit that I'm crying now.

A Weekend at Bernier's

Oh damnit.  I'm so sorry to hear this.  I felt overwhelmed by his appearances last week.  I remember watching him dangle through three Sabres to score the Leafs' lone goal in a 3-1 loss at the Aud in Buffalo.  Must have been around 1985. 

My dad suffered from Parkinson's and Lewy Body dementia before his passing.  I saw a lot of my dad in Borje, and I'm sorry that he suffered with such a debilitating disease.  God bless you, Borje.

I'm stuck for words right now but Highlander says it well. It's tough when your hero passes away but comforting to know he knew he was so beloved.  It's also very gratifying in this day and age that he truly was as great a person as we all thought. RIP Borje.
I didn't say it was your fault, I said I was blaming you.

That's so heartbreaking. RIP to the greatest Leaf ever.
