HONORABLE MENTIONS: @RealJackEdwards (Jack Edwards, NESN): "1/2 We lost Ted Lindsay, one of the great sportsmen of our time, at 93 today. A ferocious left wing, he was equally passionate about fairness for all throughout his life. Every player owes him a debt of gratitude. Lindsay started the Players' Association and risked his career.
2/2 Ted Lindsay skipped his own Hall of Fame induction because it was then a men-only affair; he started the PA. He inadvertently started the Victory Lap Cup tradition because he wanted to give the fans who paid his salary a closer view. A kind & gentle man with a huge heart."
