    These pain killers need to be banned. I lost my aunt to prescription pain killers. Please just legalize marijuana so people with chronic pain can take safe medicine. While it still isn't good for you, it is 1000x better than addictive pills.

    there are three types of hockey players that got that fans adulation : top scorers, #1 goaltender and the enforcer, if you watch 2003-2004 tampa bay team, Andre Roy got as much fan applause than Lecavalier, St-Louis or Brad Richards

    This is why I worry about guys like reeves and Wilson. The amount of times they fight is ridiculous.

    So very sad. Today players know what they are facing. But the fame, money, and under developed brain make for bad choices.

    In Boxing they call it being "punch drunk", if you ever saw Mohamid Ali in the 80's you know exactly what it is.
