#2204165 Crosby's 2012 Season now in Question

Posted by Holmstrom96 on 17 August 2011 - 07:48 AM

Maltby isn't a ****** though.


Maltby was a total ******. The only thing was that he was OUR ******, and we loved him. He was always stirring s***, being a pest, running his mouth, but never actually backed his words by dropping his gloves.

I love Maltby, but to say he wasn't a ****** is a dis-service to his career of douchebaggery.

The guy obviously had problems; he grabbed a fan in the crowd, rage issues at the very least.

I flamed him then for it, but now that seems petty.
It's hard to call for someone's head when they didn't have it themselves.
RIP Mr. Rypien.

tbh that fan prolly deserved it.

I have to think that you just thought to yourself, "What is the most over-the-top ironic thing I can say" - and came up with that.

I know, right. And those innocent bystanders that get hit by stray bullets during drive-by shootings deserve it too, cause, like, why were they sitting on their porch like that just waiting around for bullets to hit them?


C'mon. We are all in shock Rick died, but be honest, that kid was just standing there clapping his hands and got attacked.

anyone that hangs anywhere near people that are shot in drive byes are usually scum. but you dont know what that fan said. maybe the refs shoulda let him fight somone on the ice then this wouldnt have happend, I blame the refs for ruining the fun.

wow - I never knew there were so many PhD's floating around on the LGW message boards. I'll come here for expert opinions on things people generally have no idea what they are talking about more often.

All in one calender year we've seen Probert, Rypien, and Boogaard die and Crosby's career maybe done, and still no mention by the NHL about eliminating head shots. Someone has to die on the ice before they do something.

I understand Rypien's death was due to depression, but getting punched in the head didn't help his situation.

its the players fault if there skating up the ice with their head down. and players that fight no the risk.

Wow, being neg'ed for simply stating that anger or being mad at an individual who takes their own life due to depression is the wrong emotion. The fact of the matter is that sadness is the correct emotion to feel about this. Sadness that Rick was never able to get control of his disease or see a doctor that was able to help. Neg this all you want. That's the truth.

If he comes back, how long will the suspension be to the player who LEGALLY checks him and knocks him back out?

Correct. Please acknowledge this and avoid making pretentious statements.

I've gone from sadness and grief last night to a bit of anger at Rypien today for wasting his life. He had it pretty good when looking at things from the surface. I also realize the anger I feel is likely born of ignorance about clinical depression. I don't know. It's just all so tragic on so many different levels. I loved the guy and maybe I'm being selfish that I won't get to see this little guy take on guys a foot taller who outweigh him by 70 pounds ever again. I know he was no longer a Canuck and I was pissed about that, but still, this is all so s***ty. I guess he will always be a Canuck now.

If that's your thought process, than you truly don't understand depression.

That's not a knock on you, as you claimed ignorance about the disease. I'm just confirming the fact that you don't know enough about it.

RIP Rick.

I agree its kinda hard as fans and hockey players who would do anything to play in the NHL and live the life he was. Its hard to imagine how someone could be depressed when hes living the dream life of millions of people. But depression is a disease in which it wont spare you even if you are living an amazing life. A clinically depressed individual can be living a perfect life and have everything they ever wanted for themselves, yet still be depressed, its a disease that is swept under the rug way 2 often, just because you can be in perfect physical health, but not emotional health.

Yeah thanks for the confirmation. Very helpful.

Sarcastic?

Bottom line is that if you're mad at someone for taking their life when the individual never was able to get control of his/her depression shows you simply don't understand how the disease can fully consume them.

What the hell is it with hockey players passing away as of late? Far too young, so unfortunate and sad. In the last few years we've lost Sergei Zholtok, Dan Snyder, Aelx Cherepanov, Luc Bourdon, Mandi Schwartz, Derek Boogaard, and now Rick Rypien.

Steroids and other that kinda stuff that doesn't belong in the human body. The leagues just don't want to talk about it because it would look bad from a marketing perspective.
