He supposedly took his own life.

It's looking like within 10 years fighting and hits to the head = immediate 10 game suspension. These deaths from depression supposedly brought on from brain trauma/CTE are disturbing me to no end.

Edit: Assuming there is a connection.

Honestly, I am getting sick of reading these topics.

I wish his family and friends the best. This is yet another shocking blow to the NHL world.

I thought people said Rypien had been fighting depression his whole life?

It's a strange summer when more NHL players die then Pro Wrestlers ain't it??

Bet you good money that Bettman is going to use this and head trauma and the depression effects to try to take fighting out of the game, despite an 80 year plus history of this NOT happening before.......

That would be typical Bettman, and the typical reaction from the over-sensitive, over-pussified society we now live in.

And it should shock you NONE in the least.....this is the same time and place we live in where a wide receiver puts on football pads goes over the middle to catch a pass KNOWS the hit is coming but is still called "DEFENSE-LESS"......

Supposedly he sent a positive tweet the night before about looking forward to participating in the battle of the blades.

maybe this is like a David Carradine situation? :noclue:
