Dranon you are rude! There are a lot of people out there who care about hockey. I am a fan of a rival team and I am praying for those who are injured. One of which used to be here during training camp and a few games. It caused way more damage than $5.00 worth. And I am not too sure who you are but honestly you need to get a life. How would you feel if someone you knew was on that bus? Would you still be talking the way you are?!

Obviously dranon is just someone looking for attention. Not even brave enough to give a real name when you are disrespectful. Karma's a wonderful thing, can't wait until yours kicks in.

I'm sure people care less about you than the team, dranon. Car wreck with you a year from now, about 50 cents worth of damage.

I think that we should all have sympathies for the everyone involved in the crash and their families. I enjoy hockey (it is my favorite sport). I may not follow other sports, but that doesn't mean that I would want anything untoward to happen to their players and staff.
What happened to caring for your fellow man (or woman)?
