Some ex-player has probably put a hit list together against everyone who whooped his ass.....This is very upsetting I don't know the guy personally but you can tell he was a great guy.

Awful headline, apparently sources have said it wasn't a suicide though.

This year has been a total travesty. I demand a refund!!

Wade, bar none, was my favourite Leaf during his tenure in TO. Dude just oozed character.

RIP Wade.
Thanks for the memories!

Doesn't matter if it's a concussion or not.The results from the coroner will give conclusive proof if he did have any kind of brain injury.Regardless, these guys are under incredible stress given the nature of what they do. If guys are dying because of it the league needs to consider whether or not fighting should be banned.

I agree with this wholeheartedly. He represented Toronto with nothing but pure class.

Was fortunate enough to meet him once about five or six years ago. Probably the nicest man you'd ever meet. RIP big albino.

The team has now confirmed Wade Belak's death. Unfortunately his family learned through various media reports.
That's horrible...
