    RIP Dale Hawerchuk

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dale_Hawerchuk

    "In a poll of NHL general managers during the mid-1980s asking them to select the player they would start a franchise with, Hawerchuk was voted third behind only Wayne Gretzky and Paul Coffey. He retired with 518 goals, 891 assists and 1,409 points, placing him 18th on the career NHL points list. He was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 2001."

    This has got me shook. Seriously. That guy was a human dynamo and he was only 57. Apparently he was suffering from stomach cancer. If it wasn't for injuries he'd have Wayne and Gordy as the only players with 2,000+ points. Finished with 1,409 career points and injuries functionally ended his career after age 30.

    Always loved his name. It just sounded so hockeyesque.
