Let's Acknowledge Bob Probert!

It is of great sadness that the only time we think of someone and what they’ve given is when they have left us.

This was a man who did so much for everyone. He made players better both those who played with him and also the ones against him.

This would be a great time to create a trophy in his honor based on a system of the greatest point-to-PIM ratio.

Besides the game could use it.
