    Rick Rypien R.I.P.

    I seriously loved this guy and am seriously sad to hear he died. I know hes only a former Canuck who barely even played for us but I think all of us will remember Rick for being a total BAMF.

    Devastating news, I really liked Ripper, always pulled for him, whether he was facing off to fight someone a foot taller than him (and he'd usually win) or when he went through his personal issues, and I was thrilled for him to get the contract to play for the Jets. Really sad day, R.I.P. Ripper.

    That's awful to hear. You never know who is affected by depression, it effects so many people. RIP Rick

    I was away when this happened. Huge shock and very sad. It sounds like he lived some very difficult times. Prayers to his friends and family. RIP.
    If we're all such great coaches why do we recruit so hard? You need players.
