Very sad to read this news. Mr. T was such a great poster on this site and I enjoyed his posts and posting with him. I remember when he was gone for some time and then came back. It was so nice to have him on here again but I as others felt that he wouldn't be back this time.

My sincerest condolences and prayers to Mr. T's wife, daughter and family and may he RIP.  TMLfans has to angels watching over us now.

My condolences to the family and friends as well.  I do not post often but have read the posts on this site for many years and greatly enjoyed those from Mr. T, as they seemed to state views which were very well thought out, articulated, and heart-felt.  I looked forward to his posts and have missed them.  Although I was never fortunate enough to interact with him in discussions, I was affected by his wisdom and knowledge.  We are poorer for his absence.  Rest in Peace, Sir.

Sad news.  I know we were all concerned by his prolonged absences -- I recall Rick numerous times suggesting that he "feared the worst".  I did not know he was battling MS.

One of the best posters this site has seen.  Informative, enlightening, and extremely respectful.  He will be missed.

RIP Mr. T.

Wow...extremely sad news. He was a great poster here on the Site and was as big a leaf fan as there was. 

My biggest memory of him was of the office keeper pool that he ran.  For those of you not involved in it, it was probably the most intricately detailed hockey pool you had ever seen. I think he used it as a tool to further his ability to program and do it using something he loved. Unfortunately the keeper pool only lasted a bit over a year and we now know why.  I always remember that he always picked the guy that I wanted right before my turn (hey Chris....I'll never forget you stealing viktor kozlov from me! Haha).

I truly believe that he increased my knowledge of the game and of course of that ever complicated new cba.

RIP Mr. T aka Scotia aka Chris. You will be missed.

It's sad to lose someone who was as insightful and knowledgeable. He always had a good point to make and could get it across. He spoke very little about his illness, but as he talked about the technological changes he had to make to continue posting you could see the impact. He is not suffering any more, but this site and the world at large have lost a good man. My condolences to his family.

Several people have talked about doing something to honor his memory. Please keep me updated on that.

Sad news indeed. I don't think I was as heavy into the site when he was still a regular here but I know he was one of the pillars of this great community and he was very warm and upbeat in his occasional posts even though it was clear things were difficult.

My best friend's mom has MS and it is a grievous thing.  Things like this remind me I don't donate nearly enough to causes like this, I'll definitely chip in something either organized here or elsewhere.

Sad news, this makes us realize that all the mini arguments and heated debates we have on here aren't all that very important in the grand scheme of things.  RIP Mr. T, you will be missed.

I wanted to come and thank you all, on behalf of mom and I, for your thoughts and well-wishes. While I knew that dad had read and posted here regularly, I hadn't realized the extent of his involvement or the number of people he had touched until now. I do know that he loved his time here and derived great pleasure from the interactions he had with so many of the TMLfans members. I really cannot express how grateful we are for the enjoyment you gave to him - it really brightened many otherwise difficult days.

We are overwhelmed that some of his friends here would wish to make a donation in his memory. I have given cw a few suggestions and asked that he and RickC mull them over and select whichever they feel is most appropriate. I know dad would also be deeply touched.

Thank you all so very much, again.
