Oh, poor Bud, to pass away during a lockout. 95 is awesome though. WTG! You'll be sorely missed. Every time he said "One minute left in the period," I'd look up and yell "Thanks, Bud!" Another hockey family member to mourn.
God Bless, Bud.
Can't wait to read the "Phoenix: I still think it's a hockey market" chapter of Gary Bettman's autobiography. I'm guessing it's going to be chapter 11.

The guy was a staple of Red Wings hockey. I'll miss hearing his voice echo through the Joe.

Big bucket of win for the man, though its sad to see him go, 95 is one hell of an age to reach. Joe Louis just won't be the same now.

Whenever he said that, I would think to myself, "Here comes a goal from them". The Budd Lynch goal I call it.

sad news indeed.

but in retrospect..he lived a long and great life and has thousands of fans across the world that will remember his voice as a staple to the red wings history.

we should all live our lives with the dedication he brought to hockey.

i hope to shake his hand on the other side one day.

Budd, you will be missed, but not forgotten.

His left hand. I had no idea he only had one arm. Guy made it through D-Day and got hit with a German rocket in the coming weeks. Yikes. Officially a true hero.

"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk

Sad to hear, he was such a great part of the Red Wing experience. Now he may take his place as part of the great Detroit Red Wings Heritage where he will live forever amongst friends and family.

A sad day indeed.

I knew Budd went way back with the organization, but I had no idea it was all the way back to 1949.

RIP
