  1. Rest in peace Boogy Man.

  2. Just yesterday I was sounding off to a friend about how I can’t compete or lift as much as I’d like anymore because I’m getting old and my body is falling apart from many years of high competition and abuse. She e-mails me back this morning telling me to stop whining because many people don’t get the privilege of growing old…..

    Then I read this….

    Very sad! My condolences to the family and friends of Mr. Boogaard.

  3. Tragic when someone so young passes away…

  4. I am late in posting here but I have been so saddened by the passing of Derek !
    First we lost Micheal Baze(24).. ex California jockey.. now Derek.. both so young.
    I wanted to let the posters know that Derek supported a charity called
    Defend the Blue Line.. to help children of military learn to play hockey..
    In his honor the New York Ranger Blog site is making a ‘memorial’ T-shirt honoring Derek and will be selling a limited amount for $25.00. Proceeds will go to the Defend the Blue Line.
