you dont have to be a preds board poster, anyone can do it.
I'm not liking the $3 at a time. Makes it hard to donate more.

Would concur, even tho $3 or so is about as much as I can afford right now.

(also, donated)

That's what I though too but I didn't see an option to do that. It looks like you'd have to do a bunch of separate $3 donations.

I posted the link on my Facebook profile as well; hopefully we can far exceed the goal.

Tragic deal and Wade will be missed.

Broke my heart to give the news to my son. Wade was his favorite Pred (along with Toots). We met him 3 or 4 times outside of the typical meet n greets. Wade always went out of his way to talk to him, joke around, and sign whatever this 11 year old threw in front of him.

RIP #3.

I would have liked to donate more but only had 3 dollars and change left in my Paypal account, so I was able to donate $3.

Wade and Jennifer shared our table at the Predator's foundation dinner. We chose Wade because of his humor. Wade and Jennifer entertained us with many hilariuos stories. One that I remember fondly was his attempt to break the games without a goal for Toronto. He had done several interviews in Toronto about the record and how he was training. He said he was practicing shooting, making sure that his shot always went wide of the net. As we know he failed to break the record because he scored against us. The You Tube video is of that goal. He was loved in Toronto as much as we cared for him here, in our time of sorrow maybe this is one of those moents that we can share with the Maple Leaf fans.

Absolutely, without a doubt. This has effected me more than any other loss of a professional athlete. It feels like I lost a close friend. A few days later I still can't believe he's gone. My thoughts and prayers go out to his wife, children and the rest of his family.

Just a Leaf fan who actually spent alot of time with Wade during his time here. I'd like to thank your orginization for the way they embraced Wade and offered him further employment upon retirement. Thank you Nashville Preditors,a true class orginization with a true class fan base. I made my donation as well.

Rest in peace my friend.
