    Defiantly not looking good at all. Seems like it may be a heart attack, but I guess we won't know until it's released.

    We all know that he had a drug problem back in the day(mostly cocaine) so early reports are point their fingers at that.

    But it's supposedly been reported that he's passed away, just can't find a reliable source right now.

    I was going to say all I hope is that it was from natural causes, but as you said.. it's doubtful.

    I'm looking for something too, but it's all early reports. Wiki has him already gone, but we'll just have to wait till the big name places report it.

    Former NHL enforcer Probert pronounced dead

    It's official, Bob Probert has passed away.

    My condolences goes out to the family and friends of Bob.

    Arguably the toughest Son of a bitch to put on a pair of skates.

    Yikes. I grew up watching him fight the likes of Kelly Chase and Tony Twist. When he was on the Red Wings there was nobody I hated more than him (Well, maybe Steve Yzerman).

    With all that said this is a tragic day and a tough pill to swallow. RIP Bob.
