This is a truly sad day for hockey. Two young, up and coming players have ended their career today. Snyder from what I understand went through a lot of crap to get to the NHL for it then to be taken away from him so quickly.

The other career is Heatly's. This is only I disagreeumption but I strongly doubt that he will ever be able to recover from the emotional damage that this has done to him and the legal issues are unknow. From what I know of the legal system, he could very well be charged with some degree of Manslaughter which could end him up in jail for a very long time.

This isn't the thread for this but I have to say it anyway, Heatley did not end his career today. I think that's unfair and rather presumptuous.

In anycase, RIP Dan, you'll be missed and in our hearts.

Yeah, this is sad for Snyder and his family. For some unfounded and illogical reason, I always wrongly assumed he would pull through. Some of the updates seemed encouraging.

Anyway it's always tough to hear news like these and I hope, at the very least, that the mediatic attention this story got will serve other adrenalin junkies, hockey players or not, that would be tempted to act in a similar manner on the road.

Too big of a price to learn though...

My heart just sank when I heard this while watching the Canada-Sweden WWC game tonight. Simply horrific news.

My prayers go out to everyone involved. God bless Dan Snyder's family and friends.

How sad. Heatley must be emotionally torn as well.

A very sad story...

in the summer of 2001 I met Dan and had a short conversation with him at a Jason Arnott party in Wasaga Beach...I went to the party with a close firend of mine Glen Metropolit (who was recently p/u by the sens in the waiver draft) and his then teammate Stephen Peat...There was alot of Hockey Players there as well...Glen who knew Dan jokingly introduced me as a up and coming Porn Star Dick Daily...And Dan was roaring...we talked Hockey for about 15 minutes, and he was very passionate about the game!!! ...It really is a tradegy...he was nice guy...and seemed to be coming into his own...he had 10 goal in 36 games last year and would have been a regular for the thrashers this year...truley a sad day...RIP Dan!!!

Hey Kerberos, I see you're 24, I'm 25, don't you remember when you were a little younger, maybe 16-17-18, and you did dumb, maybe dangerous things? I never did anything to endanger someone else but I did do some however that could have costed my life. I was young, immature and didn't care about the consequences. I felt invincible like every kid.

I think it's pretty bogus to throw this toward the athlete/celebrity/money factors as any young/immature adrenaline junkie is succeptible at one point in his life to do something like that on impulse. While it sure does not help, it is not the base of this type of actions in society.

It will rarely have any other consequences than for you looking back a few years later and say "man were we stupid or what?". Unfortunately it ended far more tragically for Heatley and especially Snyder and he will suffer far more severe consequences (which he should now accept as he truly is responsible legally, but the moral aspect of it is far more blurry and less black and white).

This is very sad news...

Speeding is fun and exciting but this is a perfect example of what can happen when you treat a motorized vehicle like a toy.

I hope at least a few people will learn something from this tragic ending to Snyder's life.

I don't want to turn this thread into a debate on this matter (I guess I shouldn't have posted my initial opinion but oh well) so I simply won't respond.

OK I'll agree. Let's save it for the Heatley thread on the NHL board.

What ? you think it's only athletes & ferraris that could do this ? It happen everyday in north america with Honda Civic, Acura , you name ir & modified cars with young people (18-25) fascinated with speed.

Was it stupid ? SURE

But the way you react by thinking law vengeance will solve the problem for every young kid who love speed is very dumb.

Also no sympatize with Heatley & wish him jailtime is also very stupid of you.

Do you think Dan Snyder told Heatley ''hey man , slow down, you're goin very fast'' & Heatley respond ''relax man & enjoy the ride ?''

Now way , he had fun & he was also responsible for ''probably'' not telling everything inside the car.

This is very sad for Dan Snyder but it's a very a$$hole comment you just did.

If you dont want to debate then like you said, you should have thought of posting such things & being a jerk with it.

I think you go in University ? Well I think you just proof that being educated doesn't prevent you from being classless.

P.S. Im not defending Heatley's act but everyone here (NO EXCEPTION) made lack of judgment at least once in their life & this life cause the life of a person. Sad but that's life that no one should treat this matter as a black or white fascist answer.

Yeah, very classy of you to call me a jerk and an *******. Responses like yours are the reason that I usually stay away from debates and you give all habs fan a bad name by answering like that.

Edit: Forgot to state that you also called me "dumb" "stupid" and classless.

It's not classy, I was stunned to see that in 2003 , people like you come in here & trash on someone without even having a bit of sympathy for a guy that JAIL or NOT will feel very guilty for a lack of judgment that so many kids in the world made everyday of their life.

You prefer to spit your venom on a guy that didn't do anything to you & yes UNFORTUNATELY & VERY SADLY cause the life of someone.

Dont transfer the subject on me about me being classy & giving a bad name to the Habs fan ? Look at @ what you said ?

I know usually you love the sarcasm & make people jump just for fun but im not the one who wrote

''However, I have absolutely no sympathy for Heatly and I hope that he is made into an example by law.''

And I'm the one who is classless ? Im sorry but in the society & the principles that I have, I would think that you should yourself into a mirror for what you said.

Is it classless to call a person a jerk , a a$$hole when this person see the world as VENGEANCE about a kid (yes 22 years old , your maybe major but your still lacking of judgment at times) who is life is change forever for what happen & the results from it.

Think for second , 25 years later , your son did the same thing , without alcohol, he did it for fun & killed a friend. Will you sympathize for your son or you will tell him ''Son , I dont care , go to jail , you earn it to kill your friend without thinking of the consequence of your act'' ?

If you think I'm classless then go ahead but INTERNET or NOT , you are a judmental person who speak before thinking if what you said might hurt, offense other people around you.

This is LIFE not some theory like you & me learned in books.

For all intents and purpoces its all over for Heatley too. 3-15 years away from hockey is a long time. I would be amazed if he escapes this with less than that - if there is any justice left in the world.
