Plager is one of the better players to not be in the HOF.  

I’m not sure I can go that far, but surely a team and local legend.

Gilles Lupien, who played 226 games from the late 1970s to the early 1980s split between the Montreal Canadiens, Pittsburgh Penguins and Hartford Whalers before going on to become an in-demand player agent, has died. He was 67. Lupien, who stood 6'6'', became the tallest ever NHLer when he entered the league. Others have since eclipsed the record.

Official cause of death being caused by the firework blast and not the fall.

Hockey Hall of Famer and the voice of hockey in Pittsburgh for the last 46 years, Mike Lange, has announced his retirement.  He's had a number of health issues in the past few years and has a rather frail appearance, these days.  Love the man and hope he has many years left... but I'm not optimistic.
