And it's absolutely ridiculous he's creating this sideshow out of himself by saying things like what he said today.

If he's really serious about the suicidal thoughts issue, I hope he's seeking help. That's both outside of and more important than hockey. He has plenty of good years left once his playing days are over. But as I said before, I think addressing this in the media today the way he did and then backtracking as "being facetious" couldn't be more of a wrong way to handle it.
I feel for him, too, but given what likely is ME!ME!ME!ME!ME!!!!! saying it, it'l likely the Boy Who Cried Chicago Wolf displaying his massive ego.

I get my way.....I get my way or I sulk.....I get my way or you'll all be sorry.

Remember his sulking.....when Oz came on board? When he had that brief call-up from Bridge? He's likely being just a tad bit dramatic for the woe-is-me factor, and some fans are posting poison control numbers, quoting WebMD, subscribing to Psychology Today, calling suicide hotlines to get game info....

Snow's monitoring it. DP is gonna play in a lower league and do his best I hope, but he refuted the suicide thing, it's reporter drama earlier and now it's back to must-see-TVinternet.
