Toronto Maple Leafs Legend and Captain Ted “Teeder” Kennedy passed away. L I N K
“I was certainly happy to play against him, and I’m so sorry to hear (of his death),” said Montreal Canadiens legend Jean Beliveau. “He was a complete centreman, a good playmaker, a good passer, good on faceoffs.”
“He truly was a man of great class and he was one of the most accomplished leaders in our team’s long history,” Leafs GM Brian Burke said in a statement. “It’s a mark of great distinction for Ted Kennedy to have earned the Hart Trophy in a time when legendary players such as Gordie Howe, Rocket Richard, Jean Beliveau and Ted Lindsay were playing in the league.”
If Brian Burke wants to succeed as the new Leafs GM all he has to do is look to the past and players like Teeder to know what it takes to make a winner.
