THis is not about Hockey, THis is about Life. this has Nothing to do with any CBA talks or holdouts or the fact owners and the players dont agree on a luxury tax or entry contracts. DONT EVEN pretend to talk about that right now and right here.

This is about a young life that was cut short.

in the end, hockey is just a sport.

Thoughts and prayers to the Snyder family.

Well said, and good god, do I ever agree

If the CBA does not get done, it is affecting thier livelihood. This is what they do in life. Thier life profession. So get a grip if you think this death of a young man doesn't tie into the bigger picture.
WTF are you talking about though? No offense, but hockey as big as a profession and passion it is to ANY is just that - a profession and a passion.

Life has many things to offer before hockey, Love, Friends, Family, Religion, and many other things including LIFE ITSELF which is exactly what was taken from Danny Snyder, I seriously doubt looking in from the afterlife he's hoping this brings order in the CBA. And I also seriously doubt that when Comrie heard the news he said "Oh, I better sign" I hope he did exactly what I did which was prove for Snyders soul.

Hockey is not "Their Damn Life", it is simply a facet of it, I'm sure there are some people in the league who have lost their passion, for ****s sake look at Alexandre Daigle. If you heard about this tragedy and thought of the CBA, I'll pray for your soul tonight as well.

Now, I agree with everyone, Dany was a good man who had shortcomings, and also (it would seem) moments of absolute idiocy. Yah, I've been a passenger to my brother going 135 km/h down the high way, and I told him to slow his *** down, but doing it in a residential area, in a suburb? that is stupid, and he knew the concequences of his actions when he did it.

Obviously, he didnt expect Dan Snyder to die, but Dan did die. Its a reality that he has to face for the rest of his life. He took from the world, as Bettman said, "A loving brother, and son, a dedicated teammate, and a great individual" Snyder worked for everything he got in the NHL, and people can say Dany Heatley is a great hockey player - AND HE IS - but if Snyder was in the NHL he sure as hell was too.

I send prayers to Dany Heatley, and hope he can overcome this tragic time.

I Send my prayers, my love, and my condolences to Dan Snyder, his friends and his family, and all who knew him personally. I send my hope for Dan to have a peaceful and enjoyable afterlife.
