I've got no respect for people that drink and drive. Same goes for hockey players that drink and drive.

I do however hope that Sheahan changes for the better. He's only young and has plenty of time to learn.

Yeah my earlier post I didnt mean its only dumb cause he has the salary, drinking and driving is dumb. I come from an area where its really prevalent but I wont do it but yeah anyone bringing up the 21 thing is ridiculous. Is there anyone in the states who actually think that is a good law? Go get your legs blown off for your country but dont come back and have a beer with supper. As long as we dont see Sheahan driving lawnmower like this I think he'll still turn out

Its too bad he drove drunk but no one got hurt. I dont know what society can do to curb behavior but i dont believe much will. Maybe prohibition.
He blew 0.17, I don't care how he "looks". But for the grace of God, there could have been a car coming the other way with your brother/sister/mother/father in it.

He needs some tough love.

According to the Sheahan defenders it's no big deal. We should just give him a high five and tell him to carry on. I hope he realizes that two alcohol related arrests indicate he cannot enjoy alcohol responsibly and needs to get this under control. Perhaps he really has cut back on his drinking since this arrest and that's why he's playing better. If so let's hope he can keep his drinking under control. All it takes is one bad drunk driving accident to seriously **** up someone's life.

He's made one mistake imo (drunk driving) I wouldn't consider underage drinking a mistake. No need to the "ship him out of town to pop up" that's just rash thinking. Hopefully this will be a wakeup call for the kid

I think the assumption that "almost every guy has been drunk driving" is pretty flawed and also insulting. I for one haven't and given that there are quite a few religious groups with a lot of memberswho have banned all drinking in their membership I doubt I am the only one or even one of very few people.

The idea that someone's loved one, one of MY loved ones, might die because of some *****'s idiocy makes me downright angry. I am aware of the fact that some people on this board have done some drunk driving and I think less of them for it. It's such an easily avoided thing for a half-way intelligent person, so there's no sympathy from me.

I once took a ride with my then fiance's dad driving and I could smell the booze on him, I was mad as hell on the inside and I would have refused the ride if not for the fact that I had arrived with him so I would have been stuck without a ride in the middle of Detroit at midnight and the fact my fiance would have been upset by the entire thing. So I just got in the car, seething on the inside, didn't say a thing. Lost all respect for the man right there and then. And I still feel a bit bad for even letting him drive.

Here in Austria kids nowadays start drinking at 14-16y so they can get used to it until they are 18 when they can get their driving license.

Honestly thats the problem with this debate. Thank God no one was hurts but it always devolves into hypotheticals.

Thats discounting before special interests got their super drunk law, the special interests lowered the legal bac .02. WHy was it perfectly fine the way it was for years? DD is political low hanging fruit that do nothing legislatures toughen laws agianst to make themselves look good. I mean who is in favor of drunk driving?

This is a golden oppurtunity for someone with good photoshop skills to take his mugshot, impose it on the 'Superbad' movie poster and change the title to 'Superdrunk'

It was extraordinarily stupid of Riley to get behind the wheel while that drunk. Like others have said, I don't mind the drinking, but I simply can't defend the driving.

It is equally stupid to suggest that the Wings cut ties with a 20-year-old prospect who has his entire professional career ahead of him because he was arrested on a DUI. I really hope that he can learn from this experience.

I smell playoff avatars!!

I don't drink, so I can't relate to the culture of getting absolutely ****-faced and having a great time when you don't remember anything the next day. Anyways, I digress. Let him suffer the repercussions. What I don't condone and I find extremely cowardly is getting behind the wheel in that state and endangering others. That's just...selfish.

What you are seeing is a pattern, and if not dealt with properly......it might catch on and infect more horses in the stable. They cannot be complacent on this, they have to make an example for everyone else to take warning. Obviously 'shipping him out of town' isn't going to help him. Suspend him indefinitely and he can enter all the necessary programs. What I want to know is what this means for his drivers license in Ontario....

BTW, in 2002 I was hit by an oncoming drunk driver and was lucky enough to veer enough to only get side swiped and spun around backwards at 85 km/h......so naturally I have zero tolerance.

A part of me hopes that this kid never makes it big time in the NHL. Driving while drunk is totally stupid and threatens directly other lives. There are no excuses, 20 or not. I hope this kid understands how stupid and lucky (because he didn't kill anyone) he was.

You know the lockout is a problem when Bob has to resort to getting on people's cases for getting mad at a prospect who got hammered and took the wheel.

It's a great defense mechanism. I'll remember that next time that Franzen makes a mistake. I'll get into 14 year old girl hysterics yelling at their parents 'LIKE YOU'VE NEVER SCREWED UP IN YOUR LIFE' and cry in my pillow.

No. I just dislike piling on from hypocrites. <--- Not saying that's you.

But all this BS about "putting people's life at risk" ... I guess all those public school fear mongering assemblies have done their job.

Which is not to say that drinking and driving isn't risky. But there's a lot of risky behavior that takes place in a vehicle on the road.

Moral outrage is reserved for drinking and drug use.

True. But the problem is that while drunk he can do all those things, too. Text or talk on the phone. Driving at a very high speed. Using more aggressive style of driving than usual. People lose sense of fear when under influence. They start doing things what they would never do otherwise. That's why it is so dangerous and unacceptable.

Riley Sheehan is a professional athlete now. The first time he got a ticket it might of been a little more acceptable because he was a "dumb" kid. There are no excuses now, he is an adult and needs to start acting like one, especially in a country where he isn't even legal yet.

I guess if you consider these remotely the same then I suppose you might have a point. Assuming that everyone else agrees that these are remotely the same.
