I just read that Bo was in the NHL substance abuse program when he died.

Boogaard mixed drugs and alcohol

Obviously he was addicted to oxy which is all too common. Percocet, Oxycontin and Roxicontin are all the same thing in different mixtures or dosages. Percocet is mixed with APAP (asprin), Oxycontin is a sustained release pill and Roxicontin is for immediate release.

All of these have the same probabilty of addiction and side effects.

Hydrocodone like Vicodin and Norco are mixed with asprin and although highly addictive, way safer than Oxycodone in the long run.

Its sad to see people that would never in a million years take heroin be prescribed oxy for an injury and become addicted to it like a junkie on the street. Old ladies with arthritis that are strung out, athletes and actors OD'ing and high schoolers ruining their lives all because of an over prescribed pill.

I believe pharmeceutical companies are making way too much money one way or another from these medications to stop and find something better that treats pain without being a potential recreational drug.

Forgive me for preaching but this drug is worse than cocaine, meth or heroin because normal people that may have been in a car wreck or broke a bone all of a sudden are thrust into dealing with drug addiction, opiate withdrawl and possible death from abuse. This needs to stop as its ruining millions of peoples lives that didnt sign up for those type of issues.

I was afraid of this. If anyone comes across any Boogaard RIP shirts or anything like that, please post it in this thread. BTW, still waiting for that Probie RIP t-shirt (Cough, cough, Matt) :)

Aaron boogaard Arrested on drug charges

Wondering who got boogaard those oxy's now.

The police record listing Aaron Boogaard's arrest says that the date and time of his alleged crime is May 13, the same day that family members found Derek Boogaard, 28, dead in his Warehouse District apartment.

Not necessarily. Oxy (and hydro, for that matter) are the types of drugs that you try to keep your options open for. If you know someone who has access, you befriend them. You can never have too many sources, or too many pills in reserve. If you need them, you need them.

Obviously I'm speaking from the point of view of an addict.

If Aaron got arrested before the death (which is where I think you're going- Derek feeling guilty, right?), Derek could have easily posted his bail and straightened things out by hiring a lawyer. Money talks on small-time drug deals.

The article from the Trib said that he was arrested in connection with the investigation of Derek's death, which I thought meant that he had taken the rest of Derek's stash, possibly to preserve his brother's reputation by preventing the news from getting out that his brother had a stash.

That's a really interesting thought. I agree that it's doubtful it was a suicide, but hadn't thought about the possibility of Derek's brother taking his stash as a preventative measure. Despite what their parents say, I sort of doubt that the stories aren't related in some fashion.

Aaron Boogaard said his brother had just been released from chemical dependency treatment the day before and that he knew when he gave him the pill he was not in pain, according to the complaint.


Sigh... It's just sad.

Horribly sad.

The cynic in me wonders why on earth he didn't just flush the pills before calling the police. Or at least give them to someone to hide.

I'm surprised that one pill would do it. I know quite a few people who use oxy and still drink. Sometimes you get sick, but it takes a lot of booze/pills to do that.

I feel terrible for their family.

Living with the idea that there is a good chance he helped along his brothers death by providing medication?

Cannot believe how this is going down... what a shame.
"It is a lot easier to be an ******* to words than to people"-xkcd

Tootoo does NOT belong on this team. He is classless and I would rather see the Wings be bad than classless. I feel the same way about Bertuzzi as well, but he at least CAN make the team better. With Tootoo the team becomes worse and in danger of being classless. Would you have liked Claude on the team? Or Roy? No. So why would you be okay with that POS.

Kind of weird when you consider how his brother was at the draft, receiving applause and whatnot.

Couldn't agree more. I can't believe something hasn't been done about it yet, it's so obviously wrong it's SCARY and stems into many issue's I wont get into on this thread...This must be so hard on the family, such an insane situation to be in, I feel so bad.

Interesting piece on Boogaard here. Part one. Parts two and three coming this week.

It's got to be hard on you when you're considered an enforcer as a 16 year old. One of the guys in the video talks about potentially getting in 5 fights a week in the juniors.

Thank you for posting this. The video is well done, but it does seem biased. For an uniformed viewer, I don't think the video does enough to establish 'the why' of enforcers.

Agreed.

They touch on the role of enforcers briefly, but do not explore the roots of it's existence, and IMO the fella near the end of video #2 (not sure if he's an MD since his credentials weren't listed) comes across as a jerk when describing the crowds reaction to a fight that took place during a game in Boston.
