There has got to be an inquiry into these deaths. The connection that they are all 'goons' that speant their professional careers beating each others' brains in has got to be investigated.

Sad.

It's not confirmed yet, but the rumor is that he committed suicide. I frigging pray that's not the case.

I'm at Sportsnet, trust me pal, it appears to be a suicide. No one will confirm it yet, waiting for a police confirmation I believe.

Mike Flannigan just committed suicide as well. Very sad indeed.

An interesting article (http://blogs.denverpost.com/avs/2011/09/01/nhl-and-its-troubled-fighters-denial-no-longer-an-option/7953/) on NHL fighters and a possible connection to depression.
