This was all exactly what I was originally thinking. It only seems right that since the Canucks held memorials for both Snyder and Neilsen, it just seems they should have included Lyashenko in with them. Not that he was as successful or memorable as Roger, or as fresh in everyone's minds as Snyder, but just to make it right. From my understanding (which, admittily is limited), Lyashenko may have had either a mental illness or possibly a tie to the Russian mafia in some way. I do not support suicide in any way, but I also don't think he should have been excluded simply because it was how he passed away.
