Haley was a good Islander and Sound Tigers, was a nice guy to talk to the one time I met him, hope all is well!
I really hope this isn't symptoms related to CTE rearing its ugly head. One can only speculate at this point, but with his physical / fighting it sure does make you think. I really hope all is well with him.
Best wishes to Hales.
We can rag on his skill as a hockey player all we want, but we cant deny he absolutely cared about his team and mates.
Best wishes to Haley.
I start to wonder who will answer the call for Domi's suckerpunch now?
Better not be Ekblad himself
Petro would probably get KOd
Mamin or Brouwer possibly?
Wow this sucks. Hate to see a guy's career and potentially life end like this.
He should be sidelined because he's not good, not for this. I hope he gets the help he needs and if his NHL career is done, is able to recover and live a healthy life.
Another casualty of a long list of enforcers that pay the price. I think I read somewhere that he has a wife and kids. Hopefully, the contract Boo got him will help him put his life back together again and keep his family unit strong.
Just read yesterday where Jon Mirasty had a tough go of it after retiring a few years ago. Bought a Tim Horton's but was forced to sell it after 4 months as he couldn't handle the stress. Weight dropped from 225 to 175. He now has a business where he runs a ranch and breaks wild horses. He says he was diagnosed with obsessive compulsive disorder and it's not related to his fighting for so many years..................time will tell.
Hockey tough guy forced to sell Tim Hortons franchise due to health issues
This is sad hopefully he hits the ice again soon
This is sad to hear.
He got some of his first chances in the Islanders organization. Hopefully he’s able to recover.
Its always sad to hear when Player career end like this, i hope he get all the help he needs.
Worst part is he has two kids. Feel bad for the guy, regardless of anything that happens on the ice.
Hope he gets well
Glad to see that he's getting time and the support to deal with whatever issues he's going through. Whatever else one might say about him, Haley does what is asked of him for his team.
Get well soon.
What ever it is I hope he gets the help he neeeds.
Get well Hales!
We dont currently have the answer to Domi.
He will get away with it.
Ekblad. He's got it.
When someone recently pointed out that he’s not listed on our roster on the team site I was thinking it’d be our luck that he’s having concussions issues/cte and night sue the team/league or something. Idk if all that’ll happen but sounds like it could be head trauma related. Which is really unfortunate. He dropped the gloves almost every game he played it seemed, he tried hard to play his role but it has nasty reprocussions and while fights are good to see I can live without them if it means sparing the effects it has on the players. They don’t need to beat each other up for our enjoyment.
I’m all about having a deterrent on the ice but it makes things difficult when you see what happens to these guys.
He got it alright. Now whos gonna give Doni his?? (I know u are but what am i LOL)
Actually happened to read this article earlier in the week. It's a long article, but really, really good. It's about Joe Murphy, a former number one overall pick by the Red Wings. He is now homeless in Kenora Ontario. In the article it is sickening that Gary Bettman denies the link between fighting / concussions and CTE. It shouldn't matter how much money it costs the NHL, people's lives are at stake here and they need help. Serious help before people, more people, start dying.
Well the argument of Bettman and the owners being responsible is rather baseless since the players themselves are causing the concussions. I think that the league and PA should include in the CBA that the players need to waive their rights to any lawsuits concerning concussions by accepting that it's a dangerous sport and they are very well aware of this aspect by accepting this fact upon signing a player contract. You can't argue that the league isn't doing anything to reduce brain injuries but you could argue that the league isn't doing enough to prevent it. It's a double edged sword: ppl want violence in the game but at the same time they don't. How much is enough? What sort of violence i.e. physicality is too much? When you can't set the exact definition for it in the NHL then you can't expect exactly sufficient actions.
Thanks for your 'thoughts.' Is a roofer no longer insured because they slip and fall off a roof?
