There are lots of stories I hear about Sawchuk and how he was a very very sad individual. The way he died by getting into a fight with a teammate. Which was very mysterious IMO. But I've seen interviews with guys who played with him and heard stories: For example Howe once said that for a guy who seemingly had everything he was a very sad person. Marcel Pronovost who played with him on Detroit for many years and then Toronto said he was once in the dressing room and a young kid who had gotten hit with a puck at the game came in and he had a broken nose. Sawchuk apparently gave him his goalie sitck as a gift. But then turned to Marcel and told him not to tell anyone about it. The reason was according to Marcel, Sawchuk obnoxiuos because thats how he got rid of people around him, because he was self conscious. Does anyone else know why Sawchuk was like this? Was he depressive? Did he have a hard life?
