John Brophy, Dead at 83
John Brophy was 83. He spent the bulk of his hockey career as a player and coach in the Eastern Hockey League but I knew him best as head coach of the Leafs from 1986 to 1988.
He was coach for one of my first favourite Maple Leafs memories, a first round sweep of the Chicago Black Hawks in 1985-86.

John Brophy was not the most enlightened fellow, nor was he politically correct, but damn was he interesting.— Toronto Mike (@torontomike) May 23, 2016
