This is a terrible occurrence to happen to anyone playing the game they love, and for it to happen to a nineteen year old with such a bright future ahead of him, it just adds another layer of black to it.
Luc Bourdon, Alex Cherepanov, these kids are way too young to be lost. Another sad day for hockey.
All I can hope, truly hope, is this wasn't something avoidable due to a broken defibrillator or medical negligence. I hope this comes out clean and just a terrible tragedy. The less dirty hands, the better.
Ah, okay. That's a hereditary disease within my family; my sister and cousin are known to have it, and my mother and grandmother passed away from it (it was undetected in my mother until after she passed away). I don't know much about it other than that it leaves you with incredible, perpetual shortness of breath. My sister had a pacemaker put into place shortly after my mom passed away as a precaution.
I can see why it was undetected; my cousin found out he had it this year, at 22, and my mom was left undetected until she passed away at 48.
Dont even talk like that man.
I remember watching the game in Detroit...you know what, forget it, I dont even feel like going there.
I was watching that Detroit game as well....It was terrible, but when it comes to habs, it's like we have a "emotional" bond with them. If this would happen to one of our habbies, I'd probably be holding back tears.

If the story is true, I can't imagine Jagr being the same after this.
