I'm only speculating, but probably doing lines in a parking garage stairwell. How could he not be? Career ruined by an accident....jumping from team-to-team while trying to keep'er going....finally fleeing to Russia.... The man is ripe for depression and drug-use.

Still? I know in the 08-09 season he played there.

Wonder what could of become of him if it was not for that eye injury.

He had so much potential and its shame about his eye. He would of been a great D man.

11 NHL seasons and 1 KHL season all before the age of 32. More money then any of will likely make in our lifetimes..

Working at Hakim Optical.

Loved him on the Leafs <3. I would assume KHL though.

That is a rotten thing to say. The guy can still play and gets paid millions for it, just because he's not tearing up the NHL doesn't mean his life is in ruins.

He's certainly doing better than you, at least.

He's a solid enough powerplay QB with one eye. He'd have been incredible with two.

not a bad point of view to consider, though I think by the time of the injury he was already set financially, and I gotta believe when you hit that point and have that much talent being a great player is much more of his motivation, and that was killed by the injury, which is a shame....though I'm not exactly gonna cry for the guy for the reasons you pointed out.

Sure the guy probably has millions, but I don't think you could pay me enough money to be partially blind in one eye...

Are you kidding?

Going partially blind in one eye is a small price to pay for your spouse, kids, parents being set for life.

That's pretty ridiculous.....you wouldn't take $5 mill to only lose enough in one eye where you could still play in the NHL??...c'mon.

I kind of agree with you but what happened happened, he's moved on and it didn't ruin his life. The allure of money isn't even so valuable as the comfort you can raise a family and provide the very best for your kid. I don't even know if he's married but he has that cushion and still gets to play at nearly the highest level.

I talked to him randomly about a month ago. He said he was going to try and get an invite to a camp (NHL), if not he'd head back to Russia.

Why is it rotten? Rich and famous people often succumb to drugs, especially when they fade from the spotlight.
