Special thoughts going out to Brian Burke and his family. My entire hockey community on Twitter is supporting Burke right now too. It's pretty special. I've never seen anything like this before.

The Leafs released a statement about an hour ago that Burke's son, Brendan, along with another passenger died in a car accident in Indiana today. I really don't know what to say other than I'm incredibly shocked and saddened to hear this news. I remember reading about Brendan's story a couple of months ago and I was quite moved by how supportive Burke was of his son coming out. It was a very moving story. Brendan sounded like a great guy. This is incredibly tragic to hear. It really puts a lot of things in perspective for many different reasons.
