My thoughts and deepest sympathies go out to his friends, family, and all Thrasher fans. Truly a tragic day for all hockey fans around the world. I am sure he is playing hockey right now in the sky with many of the greats of old. He will be remembered.

R.I.P Dan

I nearly did as well upon reading the news on a Blues forum. The sad announcement reminded me too much of the news we baseball Cardinal fans got during the 2002 season, when Darryl Kile unexpectedly passed away.

Rest in peace, Dan. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

RIP Dan and best wishes to The Snyder family in this horrible time. Danny Heatley must feel horrible. So sad to happen to such a young man.

This is just horrible news. My prayers go out to Dan and the whole Snyder family. Thoughts are also with all of the Thrashers fans out there all over the country. This is a tragic story of a man whose life was cut way too short. Rest well Dan, you may be gone, but you're not forgotten...

I was wondering if there was mention on the news if the family had decided to donate his organs. I lost a brother in a motorcycle accident and many days the only thing that kept us going was knowing that 12 different people had new lives as a result. My parents eventually wrote to the woman who received a kidney. She went on to have a kid (something that would not be possible if she was still on the hospital kidney machine). I was just wondering if anyone had mentioned anything related to this.

I'm very sorry that this happened. Although I didn't know who he was,or seen him play,I feel as if I have to say something. I know that you guys will rebound from this tragedy and have a great season,and I'll be on the lookout. For now,just take this time to look back at what Dan has given to this team,and what he could have been.
RIP Dan

God Bless the Snyder family, the Thrashers, Dany Heatley, and the Fans. Hopefully Heatley can become a better man because of this, if there is any good to come from this. We sometimes forget that most of the young players in the NHL are still kids.

HORRIBLE!!! My prayers go out to his family and friends. I hope Heatley can rebound from this. We don't need to loose another young player over this. Is there any word if the Thrashers are going to postpone the start of the season. I don't know how they would be able to think about hockey right now. I know when I play and someone just gets seriously hurt and taken off the ice I find it hard to concentrate on the Game. R.I.P Snyder, the hockey world will miss you.

The funeral will be on Friday, the entire Thrashers team will be there. Including Heatley who was just cleared to travel abroad by a judge.

I'd like to extend my condoleances to the Thrasher fans, the family of Dan Snyder, to Dany Heatley and to everyone who has been affected by this. I was so shocked when I heard, I was almost certain he would pull through. As the editor of the sports section of my college's paper, writing this story was one of the hardest articles I have ever had to write. It just really put the game of hockey behind us all for a moment and it's just really a sad thing.

Dan Snyder - 1978 - 2003. Rest In Peace.
You will be missed.

Yep, and it's pretty easy to see where Dan got his attitude - they're a wonderful family (I've heard from people who know them)

I know nothing about his attitude but I'll make a bet that he was a sweetie.

I saw Dan play with the Wolves during the 2002 Calder Cup playoffs. He made a huge impression on me with his style of play. I'm always happy to see an AHLer move up to the NHL, but for Dan I was happier than usual. He was the underdog. He lived his dream, and though it was abbreviated, he made an impression on so many.

You are right - that article shows why Snyder was the way he was. Bless Dan's family for being so forgiving - I wish many others could be the same. But I only wish that eventually Dany Heatley learns to find the forgiveness for himself that Dan's family (and the entire town of Elmira) has granted him.

<<Do not stand at my grave and weep.
I am not there, I do not sleep.

I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.

I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.

When you awaken in the mornings hush,
I am the swift uplifting rush
of quiet birds in circled flight,
I am the soft stars that shine at night.

Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there, I did not die>>

That really is a great poem. Did you write that yourself or find it somewhere? If so, who wrote that?
