Don't know if it's because of the incident, but that prospect went from being fairly promising to never panning out. Andrew something or other...can't remember the name. Boulerice was banned from the league he was in, but the Flyers had to pick him up and gave him a shot at the big leagues.

When are pro sports going to realize they need some kind of moral standards if they want to protect the integrity (and long-term profitability) of their sports?
The kid's name was Andrew Long. He was a decent prospect, but not one who was expected to really make the team before this incident. Either way, that's not something that is tolerated at the NHL level. The game is way different.
