You need to let your kid watch that game at some point! It must be absolutely devastating for him, kids grow so affectionate towards players - I'm 19 and I don't even want to think about Jason playing for another team. I remember when my dad told me that Briere wasn't on the team anymore and I just though "no that can't be true, he isn't allowed to play for another team!"

What the hell am I going to do with my Pominville jersey now?
My first experience with death that I remember was dealing with Tim Horton's passing when I was a wee lad. I couldn't understand why he'd played and now was gone, that just wasn't possible. Ah youth.

He's happy for Poms to be going to a strong team -- he already knew about Suter and Parise and the fact the Sabres have stunk this year has allowed him to grow a bit more callous regarding his attachments.
