    That's sad. Wonder what was wrong with him? Seems like a lot of athletes have been committing suicide the past few years. Belak,Boogaard, a few guys in the NFL, all concussion related.

    ..and by various accounts, Bleak wasn't suicide. But your message is load and clear.

    Freel was a fun guy to be around most days. He was outgoing, funny and goofy. Other days, he was a different person. He'd sit and stare silently at his locker. We used to joke that his mood depended on the medication. Those gags don't seem so funny now.

    And that style of play caught up with him. His numbers dropped off significantly after the concussion that he suffered in a collision with Norris Hopper on May 28, 2007. He missed a month. He was not the same player after returning.

    When we asked him about the concussion, he guessed that it was his ninth or 10th. I tried to track him down a couple of times. My theory was the concussions had a lot to do with his career going south. I wanted to write about it.
