The NHL's Sickening Summer Continues

Multiple reports say former NHL tough guy defenceman and former Saskatoon Blade Wade Belak has been found dead in his Toronto condo this afternoon. If so, this means Derek Boogaard, Rick Rypien and now Belak have left us wayyyyyyy too early. If this is related to the other two, the league can't shy away from an issue that could mushroom out of control.

The only way this gets stopped is when the NHL abolishes fighting. That won;t happen because its the only way the NHL gets highlights shown on places like ESPN. Thus this will sadly continue.

Wow.....tragic for sure. But related? Keep grasping at those straws boys...suicide, drugs, etc. Yeah, like they didn't have a choice or other means of treatment. Blaming it on hockey fighting is the pussies way out.
