He made me proud to be a Wings fan, when I was a teen!

These guys aren't fighters now, they are actors.

He was a f***in fighter! He wrote the book on how it's done!
lighten up people, it's the internet!

This guy was as menacing as they come. There will never be another.

It's always a shock when these things happen, no matter how old they are. Best wishes to his family.

Hawk blog on Probie

I know everyone is mad at the Hawks, but give this a read and tell me the organization didn't try to do their best to care for Probert.

He was, and is always, a Red Wing to me, needless to say.

He's more of a Wing than a Hawk, hands down.

I just read about his passing on this board. I cannot believe it. In spite of his lifestyle he was way too young for this.

One thing most of you will have over me is that you will have all those memories of him on the ice. I didn't get to watch him that much, and oh how I wish I had shown up in time.

This is the bottom line for all of you out there. No one can ever take those wild, crazy and precious memories of him away from you.

My condolences to his family. The pain for them has to be almost unbearable right now.

"He even ate with women who at that time were accorded the same status as the family donkey. Are we willing to break bread with, say, child sex slaves, transgender teens and undocumented workers? Because when Jesus comes back to Earth, that's where he'll be hanging."
You can easily judge the character of a man by how he treats those who can do nothing for him.

Damn. Surprised but not shocked. Bobby worked hard and played hard.

Prayers going out to his loved ones.

They should make a big statue of his fist to go on Jefferson Ave. next to the statue of Joe Louis' fist.

I specifically signed up for this forum to give my regards to all you Detroit fans. I am a die-hard Blues fan, yet find myself devastated by the loss of Probie. What an absolute warrior, and a hell of a hockey player. I am 29 years old, grew up hating Probert, but always dreamed of how great he would look in the 'Note.

I am so sorry for your loss Detroit. Life has a way of smacking you between the eyes, does it not?

Was it the heat? It's been in the mid-90's around here lately, probably even hotter on the water (guess he was working on his boat). :( Was shocked to hear this news. RIP #24.

Yeah the people of Detroit are battlers.Not a resident anymore,but a former one.Detroiters seem to get kicked down constantly,but we always get back up.Bob Probert symbolized the city of Detroit as well as its citizens:hard working,fearless,tough as nails.Probie will forever be an icon in the Motor City :thumbup:

Unfortunately, I'm sure that his past substance/alcohol abuse was a factor in that. Such a shame that he had so many off ice problems.
