I do agree that someone needs to be done to make players more aware of the dangers that can come with driving fast cars, and automobiles in general. It still hurts to see one of my all-time favorite players reduced to handing out sticks from a wheel chair while wondering why Chicago Blackhawk Chris Chelios and LA King Luc Robataille are practicing with the Red Wings.
Actually I remember Selanne was charged with driving somewhere in the neighbourhood of 100MPH on 40MPH(?) road in Finland. There was talk of him facing criminal charges, but I do not remember if he crashed or what happened there. But an insane speed on the public road was involved.
