Well.......... he's a pretty damn good hockey player... and he's probably turned down more chicks in one night at the bar than you'll bang in your whole life... so I'd say things are going ok for him genetically and otherwise

Best article Botchford has written in his whole life... well probably cause its largely quotes

Botchford: Rypien on Bieksa?s mind ?a lot?

Quote:
Botchford: Rypien on Bieksa’s mind ‘a lot’

Defenceman doing his part for late teammate and mental illness

BY JASON BOTCHFORD, THE PROVINCE AUGUST 28, 2013

‘I say a little prayer to (Rick Rypien) or have a little talk with him before every game during the national anthem,’ says Canucks defenceman Kevin Bieksa, above.

This month is the two-year anniversary or Rick Rypien’s death, and his memory continues to echo.

There is, of course, Mindcheck.ca, the resource-based website dedicated to helping people understand the challenges of mental illness.

There is the Raise-it-4-Ryp Golf Tournament, a legacy charity event that will be held Tuesday.

And then there is what happens on the ice before every Canucks game, quietly inside the heart of one of his best friends.

“I say a little prayer to him or have a little talk with him before every game during the national anthem,” Canucks defenceman Kevin Bieksa said.

“He’s on my mind a lot. I still have pictures of him hanging in my house too.”

The second annual golf tournament will be fun. Bieksa will bring a few of his teammates with him to Mayfair Lakes Golf Course and Country Club. They’ll be out to keep the mood light. The focus will be on Rypien’s legacy, good rounds of golf and the money that will be raised. Last year, the tournament produced $23,000, which was donated to causes like Mindcheck.ca.

But it’s not always possible to avoid the heavy emotions involved in Rypien’s death. It sure wasn’t for Bieksa on Aug. 15, the day that marked the two-year anniversary of Rypien’s suicide.

“I made contact with the family and made sure they were doing well throughout the day,” Bieksa said. “But all the memories came back. It brought back some bad memories, for sure. How I found out. Where I was in my house.

“I remembered after putting my kids to bed, I was in the office and I got the call. I remember sitting my wife down and telling her about it. She was very close to Rick as well.”

During the past two years, Bieksa has become an active spokesman for Mindcheck.ca, overcoming his own apprehension about opening up to share the things that are nearest his heart.

“It’s pretty small relative to how big the problem is,” Bieksa said. “But we’re doing our part. We’re raising awareness in B.C.”

It is the reason Bieksa was the Canucks’ nominee for the 2013 Bill Masterton Memorial Trophy and part of the reason seven Canadian NHL clubs participated last season in Hockey Talks, a month-long initiative designed to raise awareness about mental illness. The hope is that one day it will include all 30 NHL franchises.

Bieksa has made it clear he’s determined to honour Rypien by bringing public awareness and support to those struggling with mental-health issues.

“There’s still not a whole lot of education out there,” Bieksa admitted. “If you don’t have a close friend or relative who suffers from it, you’re pretty unaware of it.

“I’m trying to educate players. I’m trying to educate people.

“It’s not the most comfortable situation for me. Some of those memories and moments (I share) are hard.

“I’m a private person and I like to keep those moments to myself.

“But the reason I share them is that it can help so many other people. I push myself out of my comfort zone to help out.

“This is what Rick wanted. Rick wanted to help out younger people suffering from the disease.

“I’m carrying out his wish for him.”

Was browsing through HFboards and started reading this thread some pretty funny stuff in there.

Link to thread Photoshop Player Faces Onto What It Looks Like They REALLY DO For A Living - HFBoards

Some good Kessel ones in there



IMO the best one in the thread with Trevor Gillies

Been told to NOT be surprised if the Avalanche deal Paul Stastny to Buffalo for Ryan Miller. Stastny/Miller both headed to UFA in summer

Why does Buffalo need Statsny? He's getting old and they're in what looks like a rebuild.

True, but it doesn't look like the Sabres want to admit on "rebuild"

Dregger tweeted that the rumor was false... so out the window it goes

Statsny is overpaid and washed up

The longer the CoHo negotiations go on makes me appreciate the trade for Kassian more.

Don't get me wrong, I'm still waiting for Kassian to go beast but I'm glad we got rid of such a difficult player in CoHo.

He has one of the worst +/- in the league. Av benches him. Torts will tell the media he Sucks.

Glad we got rid of trouble.

And am I the only one that doesn't think CoHo is not that scoring elite player a lot of ppl claim him to be?

Whenever I read a Coho comment, ppl say oh look at that shot against Boston. Or you see highlights of him and it's the shot against Boston.

I admit he's good offensively but not like he's the some centre we will regret trading.
