Some of the talk I've seen online makes it look pretty grim.

why the **** would people run to twitter when someone dies?

Habs 1909 08-15-2011 08:29 PM

R.I.P. Condolences to him and his family.

Easily the best pound for pound fighter in the league. I'll never forget when he took on Gill and still destroyed him despite the height, weight and reach difference.

ROEN 08-15-2011 08:29 PM

Horrible news, psychological issues are so unfair, may his soul find the peace he deserved.

PyrettaBlaze* 08-15-2011 08:31 PM

Wow.

R.I.P.

I HIGHLY doubt it's the first thing she did.

There was probably a few hours or maybe a day after the passing.

JHabs61 08-15-2011 08:38 PM

Wow. R.I.P I liked him as a player too. tough guy. Not gonna say to much til full details come oout..

SouthernHab 08-15-2011 08:40 PM

Wow. Shocked and stunned.:(

PyrettaBlaze* 08-15-2011 08:53 PM

Suicide is suspected...

Habsterix* 08-15-2011 09:58 PM

I'm very sad to hear this news. I just loved Rypien when he was with the Canucks. Maybe the toughest pound for pound fighter in the entire NHL.

RIP Rick... :(

Has anyone else heard that Bob McKenzie posted on Twitter that he had been traded along with Bogosian to us for Kostitsyn and Tinordi shortly before his death came out, and then deleted the tweet? I heard that, very mysterious if true, I wonder what that's all about.

Regardless, a tragic story and I am very upset to hear this. He was a great fighter, loved to watch him throw down.

Such a shame. RIP Rypien

It wasn't the real Bob McKenzie. Fake twitter account.

JuJu Mobb 08-15-2011 10:31 PM

I remember him trying to attack a fan in Minny. He was then sent home for personal reasons.

R.I.P.

Oh, I see...Shame someone was probably trying to make a joke out of his suicide rather than playing for Montreal I guess?

Nothing to be made light of. Terrible situation.

R.I.P so young :(
