    I can't even comprehend what a tragedy of that proportion would do for any team. I personally got the chance to see Karel Rachunek play as an Ottawa Senator, and I've still got his autograph...he, like the rest of this team, will be missed. Their lives were taken from them too early.

    Also, I agree...this has been an annus horribilis for hockey, and I hope that no further lives are taken from a beautiful game.

    All the former NHLers, I've seen play, whether on TV or in person. I've also had many of them on Fantasy Hockey teams (hence my reason for watching). So, it strikes a chord with me..
