I have two clear hockey memories from my early childhood; the other one was Boris Mikhailov playing his last game in the Soviet national team and the other was witnessing Pelle Lindbergh in a terrific form against Czechoslovakia (I´m not sure but I think it was the game played in Lake Placid, which Sweden won 4-2 despite of Czechs´domination).

Being Finnish, I was taught to hate the Swedes (it´s true!) from a very early on, but I couln´t help feeling great admiration for Lindbergh... R.I.P

I was lucky enough to see Pelle play during his huge AHL year as a Maine Mariner.

He and Thomas Ericksson were here in 80-81 and along with Ron Flockhart, made it a great winter to be a hockey fan.

The only thing that has approached it in terms of shock value to me was Konstantinov's debilitating injury.

Both involved late night driving, expensive automobiles, alcohol.

Let's hope future generations of millionaire players will learn from history.

As long as alcohol is a legal drug, and can be bought in any grocery store. And until people learn that you can congregate and have a better and safer time with marijauna, most folks will never learn

Typical backwards NHL logic. Craig MacTavish decides to go out drunk driving and an innocent person dies because of it; no suspension there. Mark Fitzpatrick kicked his pregnant wife in the stomach; no suspension there. Ric Nattress got caught with a joint and was suspended for half a season.

As for Lindbergh, it was a tragedy but I`m glad he`s the only one who suffered the consequences of his actions. Imagine how much he could have done over the last 20 years: have kids and watch them grow up, possibly win a Stanley Cup, but he decided that driving drunk that day was more important. A sad tragedy, but a totally preventable one.
