Deadspin had this (http://deadspin.com/#!5775059) article about the late great Bob Probert:


Hockey Enforcer Bob Probert Suffered Degenerative Brain Disease

The brain researchers to whom Bob Probert donated his postmortem brain will announce Thursday that the late NHL tough-guy suffered from chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE) when he died of a heart attack last summer.

You can argue that a few others may have been equal at times to Bob Probert, but nobody was a better enforcer in his prime. Bob died of a heart attack I believe about a year ago, and with this story I think it is a good idea to have a Bob Probert appreciation/dedication thread.


Maybe we can post some videos in remembrance:

Very nice, heres a fight with Glen Cochrane in which Bob stats landing upper cuts at the end, and effectively ends things

And we have Tie Domi vs Bob Probert. I think this was their first match up ever. I miss these early 90's fighters. When i was younger you would almost just follow who your guy would be fighting whenever you had a non division game.

I just want to add that Domi got his ass handed to him in this fight
