Hockey Coach
    (October 23, 1925-November 24, 1990)
    Born in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada
    Played with the New York Rangers (1947-50)
    Head coach of the Philadelphia Flyers (1971-78) and New York Rangers (1978-81)
    NHL Coach of the Year (1974)
    He hired plenty of goons for the Flyers, a.k.a. 'The Broad Street Bullies.'
    He said, 'If you can't beat the other team in the alley, you can't beat them on the ice' and 'If you keep the opposition on their asses, they can't score points.'
    The Rangers signed him to a $5 million contract to keep him from retiring, then fired him in the middle of the 1980-81 season.
    He rarely praised his players, saying 'That's just the way I am. I told my wife 'I love you' once - and that was the day we were married.'
    He hired the first assistant coach in the NHL.
    He was mugged after a playoff game against the Atlanta Flames (1974).
    Before leading the Flyers to clinching the 1974 Stanley Cup, he delivered the motivational message, 'Win together today and we walk together forever.'
    In a Philadelphia Daily News poll (1999), he was named the city's greatest pro sports coach, beating out such legends as Connie Mack of the A's, Dallas Green of the Phillies and Dick Vermeil of the Eagles.
