Awake and alert as he was rushed out of the arena, so that is a HUGE plus. Thoughts are with him.

Yup, hope he’s doing ok.

Heard this late last night.  Hope he's OK.  Always scary when these things happen suddenly without warning.  I'm a little shocked that the postponed the entire game.  Not at all against it of course, it's completely understandable, I just thought that when stuff like this happens all of the players and staff are of course shaken, but somehow they usually continue and play on.

Ya, stopping the game is ridiculous. He collapsed on the bench, not even the ice.  What's the difference between this and someone getting their head rammed into the boards? Both are life threatening but the game continues for the second one.

This is a business FFS, on with the gaddam show

I think there's a major difference between an injury that's caused by a hockey play and teammates thinking they just saw a guy maybe have a stroke and die.

I don't know how teams go about it and I'm sure they charge because they are cheap like that but my only issue would be is that they should offer free parking for the makeup game.

At least they didn't cancel the game because the lights went off in the building and they couldn't get them back on lol

I think they could’ve continued, but it’s a certainty not offensive that they did not.

Well, it would be offensive to fans who forked out a ton of cash and brought their kids, etc, then had to leave after not even one period.

And yes, I'm sure they will get in to the make up game for free but time is still lost.

They will get tickets to the make up game or another game for free.

I really don't think you can compare someone crashing into the boards to a guy who was receiving CPR on the bench.

No qualms from me about stopping the game.  For all the guys on the ice knew they just watched a guy die on their bench.

Honestly, anyone offended by that can go fvck themselves.

1) If he’s willing to re-sign, that problem is solved, and 

2) I don’t know how you would know that, but even if it’s true, even with a big raise, he’s still making peanuts, giving your team a little life, and he’s a veteran presence plus alt captain material. 
 

I’d rather have all of that over crap plus a 3rd two years from now.

I will admit I do not have a crystal ball and cannot predict the future.  However, if he does re-sign I think it is more likely than not that he will not be as effective as he is now than when we are good in a few years.

I think veteran presence is a little overrated and can easily be replaced by better players in UFA.  

I am just in the general mindset that this current group of players are just not worth moving forward with outside of Hughes, Nico and Blackwood.  The quicker we can move away from this guys the quicker we can get to better days.

Why does expressing my opinion on here be compared to EMO teenagers on Twitter?  IF you don't agree with me that's cool, but I'm entitled to my opinion like anyone else.

Baseball players have teenage princess level toughness when it comes to dealing with adversity.

And I’m entitled to say it would have been a garbage move for them to force players to continue when one of their teammates could literally be dying. Some things are more important than a game.

How do you block posters again? And yes the word I should have used is adversity 

If someone explain it with too much clarity... You won't have too much people reading your next messages.

it happened to Rich Peverley too few years ago in Dallas

And a guy on the Wings years back. I still remember the images of the players sprinting with the gurney across the ice.

Didn't that Rangers’ prospect drop dead on the bench during a game (overseas) in like 05-06?

EDIT: Both names escape me and I’m on my phone. I do remember both were European, maybe even both Russian.
