For those of you who are not aware, to many of us Tim Horton doesn't just make a great cup of coffee! He was probably the greatest of all Toronto Maple Leafs defencemen playing back in the 50's and 60's. Considered to be the strongest player in the N.H.L. He was tragically killed in a car accident in the early 70's while returning to Buffalo(who he was playing for)from Toronto. Many believe it was no accident, he hit a bridge support column at about 150mph.
