Probie, you may forever have been the best at what you did. Rest in peace, Bob. You will be missed.

They likely wouldn't retire 24, especially since Chelios wore it so long. But I bet nobody wears #24 in Detroit for a while.

Kind of ironic that article talking about Jacque Demers. He was hospitalized today as well. He is recovering from surgery.

A report says the former hockey coach has been bed-ridden for about a week with a stomach ailment.


Not a good hockey day! :thumbdown:

unfortunately, being the pricks that they are, the Hawks will probably beat us to it, like he was theirs and theirs only...

I swear to God, if they do something with the #24, I will personally burn the United Center down!!! (not really, but I will be pissed!)

Why? If both teams do it even better, Probert deserves the honor of being remembered

Absolute tragedy...

Probie was the greatest enforcer of all time in the greatest era of hockey. We'll miss you Bob.

Wow! Poor Bob! What a horrible loss...and a reminder of a different time in Wings history. People in and around Detroit and Windsor loved Probert and the whoopass he regularly dished out. What better hero to have in blue-collar towns like those? A big loss. R.I.P. Bob!

He looked really happy and cleaned up on that ice dancing show he did with Domi.
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

I just heard the news not too long ago when I came home, my dad has been a Red Wing fan all his life and he was very sad and shocked when I told him. He was soo young only 45. Very sad. I don't believe I ever seen him play but I have seen him at ceremonies and what not, I seen him on something not too long ago. What a great hockey player and will be missed by many. I can see how people at first thought maybe he just collapsed from the heat or alcohol or something who knows cause it was soo hot out and you got to stay hydrated but it was much more worse. I can't imagine what his family and friends are going through and I hope he wasn't in a lot of pain. Heart problems have been happening with a lot of people lately, everyone please make sure you get check ups, a lot of people have undetected heart problems. Rest in peace.

On the Ice...One of the most hardcore, determined, meanest, don't give a f*** players you'll ever see take the ice.

Off the Ice...One of the classiest, down-to-Earth, gentlemanly human beings you'll ever meet.

RIP Probie...You will ALWAYS be in our hearts

RIP Probie. Arguably the greatest enforcer the game ever had.

I started watching the Wings in the mid-80s, and man was Probert one of the reasons to watch. Yzerman was the Wing's offense, and he got so much room out there because of #24. It would've been too easy to take a run at Stevie Y if they didn't have to answer to Probert.

Bob's 87-88 season was the best ever for an enforcer of his caliber. I'll never forget seeing him in the all-star game with Yzerman. He didn't know what to do out there because you don't really hit guys in the All star game.

74 games, 29 Goals, 33 assists for 62 points while amassing 398 PIM. In the playoffs that year he led the team with 8 goals and 13 assists for 21 points in 16 games (that was the year of Yzerman's knee injury). It was a record held by Probert until Fedorov broke it in the mid 90s, I think.

Sad day for the Red Wings. Sad day for hockey.

i guess when the wings and hawks play in the stanley cup banner raising game, the 2 teams he played for can have a pt.2 of the ceremony. it would be as appropriate a time as any i would think.
