My condolences to the Snyder family and the Thrashers organisation.
May God be with and help Dany Heatley too.
We all as part of the hockey community, whether we're fans, players, coaches, media personnel, etc. is that when tragedy strikes, it effects EVERYONE, it doesn't matter who or where your team loyalties are. That's part of what makes our community unique and great.
My heart fell as I read the news. I was hoping that no news was good news, and that he was coming along. My heart goes out to the Snyder family and friends, as well as the Thrashers organization and fans. The good ones always seem to leave too soon. He touched a lot of people in his short time here - RIP Dan.
Snyder was not a superstar who got the breaks and the silver spoon. He is like us, he had to muck it out, work hard and take a lot of pain to get to where he wanted. His death was sad, but he never gave up and made every second count.
As a both a fan of great hockey and a human being, I and all the other Columbus Bluejackets fans mourn with the family and friends of Dan Snyder and the Entire Atlanta Thrashers family. As Roman Lyashenko, the Bluejackets own Trevor Ettinger and now Dan Snyder it becomes clear, heartbreaking and unfortunate that the good ones go first.
R.I.P Dan...you are gone, but will not be forgotten...
my sincerest condolences to his family, friends, the Atlanta Thrashers, and the Atlanta fans --
My thoughts exactly.
It makes us all realize what really matters in this world. I can't even fathom how his family, and especially his parents are taking this but they have a lot to be proud of in their son.
Heatley must be feeling like the world has come down on him, you gotta wish that these 2 mens lives didn't have to be ruined like this, especially Dan Snyder's. I think we all thought he was gonna make it, I was just waiting for good news,
