In memory of Pat Quinn: His take on his famous Bobby Orr hit

Pat Quinn, a two-time Jack Adams Award winner and the coach who led Team Canada to a historic gold medal at the 2002 Olympics, passed away on Sunday night after a long illness. He was 71.

Naturally, the hockey world flocked to social media to share its grief. There were many expressions of condolence, but we think this is the way Pat would have liked it. Happy memories, not the mushy stuff.
