Exactly, it's not like it's Jagr's fault, his heart must have been a ticking timebomb. Still, I feel horrible for Jagr because it's just human nature to feel guilty. Horrible story.
Again not true...you can have a perfectly normal heart but if it receives trauma from a blow hard enough it can throw the rhythm off and the heart may never regain it's proper heart rate to supply blood to the organs.
Something like this touches home a bit. I have a condition with my heart called SVT. I take a risk each time I touch the ice, but my life is in the Lords hands. I will keep playing hockey and pray for the best.
Yes, it's possible to pass away from sudden heart trauma (Getting hit, especially just right) without a pre-existing condition just as it's possible to survive a 'perfect' hit with a pre existing condition. These are facts, and should not be the point of discussion.
What we really need is some answers, from a reliable or more than one source(s). Let's hope this kid is a live and well. I'd be happy for him if he were looking down recovery road right now, rather than towards the white light. Anywhere else mentioning his death besides sports.ru?
