I'm sorry he's gone, but if I live half the life he did I'm gonna be pretty happy.

Red Wings radio play-by-play man Ken Kal called Lynch a legend in broadcasting, a great ambassador for the Red Wings and a fatherly figure to many.
“He was to Red Wings hockey what Ernie Harwell was to Tigers baseball,'' Kal said. “He never said a bad word about anybody. He was a genuine person.
Years ago, I read a story about a recent veteran who had to have an arm amputated. He ended up being contacted by Budd who gave him all kinds of advice, on how to do day-to-day things like buttoning shirts/sleeves, ironing, etc, as well as all kinds of humorous outlooks on his new way of life. It was very a touching read, and I wish I could find it again.

I agree they should use a taped "One minute left in the period" at the end of the game every game. And I am sure that there will be a jersey in the rafters if we even see another season.
