What can you say about a guy like Lappy that hasn't already been said? He's everything a hockey player should be. He's skilled enough to play the game, he's a pretty good family man from what I hear, he's great in the community, he's a fan favorite everywhere he plays and he's the toughest man on the ice night in and night out - he's willing to hit, block shots, muck it up in the corners and even at 35 years of age he fights with greater frequency than almost anybody else in the league. I sometimes don't like that he's a mouthy pest, but I guess I don't mind mouthy pests if they aren't afraid to back it up and give the recipient of the smacktalk an invite to try and shut him up.

Well he'd better just watch out cause we're gettin' Hudler back next year! :P

From TSN:

Always hated him.

Guy played his ass off and was a great team guy, but he was a crappy, boring fighter, who hugged in just about every fight.
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

Lappy was the kind of guy that every team hated to play against, every teams fans hated him, and everyone wanted him on their team. Guys like him are becoming more and more scarce in the league these days.

I hope he has a quality life after hockey. It's tough seeing a guy who played like him have to retire after two years in the sick ward. Good luck to you, Lappy.

I second that. I cannot stand him, never have and never will. Just one of those players that piss you off lol. But like you said, never want to see a player go out in that fashion regardless of who it is.

I really liked the movie by the way
