Totally. Great bet to have a guy like that with the salary he has.

Halak had a bit of a rough/unlucky start to the year.

Craig Rivet to play in the ECHL. This is kind of depressing...

My first thought was wt. By passing the AHL, then as I opened the link my first thought was REGGIE dunlop? Transition year as player / coach maybe.

Patrice Brisebois admits to having had Major Depression a few years ago

http://tvasports.ca/video/featured/l.../1215671057001

http://fr.canoe.ca/sports/nouvelles/...12-233837.html

Basically says when he was booed, he fell into fullblown major depression, had to take pills and had to have psychotherapy. Says his teammates did not care what was happening to him.

Says he feels the booing was undeserved, his dream had always been to play for the Habs and win cups here.

Says we should forget the players' salaries and try to see the human beings. Still feels angry and shaken by the whole thing.

Oh, the Brisebois thread got moved ? Really ?

I suppose people have to kill themselves before we care enough to allow ONE whole thread about it, right ? Anyway, my anger is not directed at the mods, I kinda get it, but this is what I was gonna say...

Funny, the only two people that helped him are the two that are/were most unanimously attacked by fans and media alike...

Brunet and Gainey.

Some situations are treated rather lightly not only in the NHL but also in life in general, being conscious of something really is the first step and we're not even there yet. Ganging on somebody is borderline evil, this is not in the realm of being a hardcore sports fan anymore.

There are some primal instincts that need to be flushed out, people are suffering and dying because of collective choices we make, take your responsibilities or accept the fact that you are indeed part of a larger problem.

We have to realize as a group that the line is very thin between a major depression and a suicide, my mom and uncle went through it recently, I was in contact with 3 suicide attempts this summer (strangely my uncle's depression followed a car crash where he lost consciousness and hurt his head real bad) , and let me tell you, some of the things people say about brain damage and depression make me sick...

This kind of ignorance is inexcusable.

Let's hope understanding is coming and for good in the next decade.

In that case, I respect him for signing in Montreal after the lockout then!

I think that a lot of us look at NHL players and think that they are lucky, spoiled or even live a better life than us, truth is that everyone of them go through way more than we can see and the majority of them have the same problems as someone making minimum wage, I recently spoke to someone who knew a professional NHL player personally and said that after he got injured and retired, he was only in his 30's and had no more money to maintain his lifestyle and eventually went bankrupt and did not even have enough money for an apartment or to buy a Honda.

Bottom line is, respect these players for the entertainment they provide us night in and night out, they earn every penny, especially in a city like Montreal!!!

Well, its not hard to believe, these guys are uneducated because of the path they choose to go with. So managing their money when they are pros is their last problem until they lose their job.

Good post.

Sadly, as shown by this poll back in 2007, about 12% of Habs fans are heartless idiots who would probably have laughed and said "good riddance" if Brisebois had commited suicide. But what can we say? They live in a virtual world in which they're used to play videogames where players can be abused without any real consequences. To them, the hockey players are not human beings. They're just lifeless tools earning big salaries that can be toyed with, defamed, humiliated and physically brutalized as part of a giant show they wish they could control.

Yeah, has nothing to do with the subject at hand. Most of the people I heard rail against brisebois were of the 30+ crowd.

The videogames were just an example. I don't blame videogames itself. I just blame those people who don't care about the human beings, who just care about the show, who thinks they have legit rights over the players. Because they think everything is a reality show or a videogame.

Because they don't know those players on a personal level, they think there's no problem if they get multiple concussions or if they're booed in an humiliating fashion everyday. After all, they make a lot of money, so who cares?

Again, I don't blame videogames or reality shows. I blame that 12% of dumb fans, that's all.

Is that 12% a fact? If it's true, then hockey (and other violent sports) must be attractive to sociopaths.

How is that a problem? Nothing in life is free, you need to work for things in life. You can't expect the world handed to you on a silver platter.

If I don't work, I can't afford an apartment or a honda either. That's why I work.
