Wow, very sad news indeed. I knew he was in critical condition but the doctors' comments seemed promising so I was hopeful.

that sucks. was hoping it was fake when no other sites were reporting it.

im going to make a prediction. It may be a terrible prediction. But im going to say it.

I dont ever see Danny Heatly ever being an effective Hockey player again.

If he was, owe 4 or 5 years older, I could see him being able to play through it. But for the very same reason people say he was speeding for. May be the very same reason he may never play effective hockey again.

aside from all his injuries, this is one helluva burden to carry on your shoulders.

I repeat right now who really cares, a young man just died. I don;t care about how a hockey player will pull through.

Very sad news, tragic for not just his family and team but for all of us. The hockey world and world in general has lost a young man who worked hard his whole life to get what he wanted. All my thoughts go to his family and friends, you'll definately be missed Dan.

i dont care what you repeat

a young man died. Outside of paying our respect, there isnt much more than can be said.

Heatley, on the other hand, was a star in the making. Now that Dan Snyder has passed, the next best wishes have to goto him. Crime or not, i think everybody is hoping he can put this all behind him, and play hockey again.

He put 2 lives on the line. And He just payed the ultimate price for it, lets just hope he can save the other.

Terrible

This is terrible. My thoughts and prayers go out to Snyder's family and friends as well as all in the Thrashers' organization. There's no emoticon for this, sadly.

I too would like to send out my thoughts and prayers to Snyder's family. And for those who dont want to hear anything about Heatley in this thread....It has to happen....Heatley was essentiallly responsible for this, and now he somehow has to live with this.....for me, I seriously dont see heatley ever playing hockey again, because of what has to be going through his mind and the fact that he's undoubtedly gonna face some kind of manslaughter charges.

Man, this is horrible. It had started sounding a little bit more positive the last few days and then this happens. I'm kind of pissed at ESPN and some of the other news companies. They hardly ever had an update on Snyder, but had 2 or 3 articles on Heatley every day. All they wrote about is Heatley because he is a star, but Snyder got the worst of the accident and he was pretty much spoken about last in every article.
Anyways,
RIP Dan Snyder

Dan, I guess this battle was just too big. You fought and won all the others. My heart goes out to the Snyder family, his hometown of Elmira and his "adoped" hometown of Owen Sound. It's always the good ones that leave us too early........

Heatley will be charged with manslaughter. I know this will never get to the Snyder family but I give them my condolences. Just a shame. This has been a bad YEAR for hockey (Roman Lyashanko, Herb Brooks)

Terrible news.

Admittedly, I did not know anything about Snyder before this incident, however, from comments read about him on the Atlanta board, his story was quite fascinating. His path to the NHL did not seem to be easy, and he seemed to get to his goal based on determination. His charity work, and impact he had on the community seemed tremendous, and I'm certain that his impact will stay with the kids that he helped in these charites for years to come. All and all, he seemed to be a remarkable young man, and his death truly is a tragedy. My thoughts and prayers do go out to his family.
