Shame on Rick Rypien

Bernard Levesque, Montreal

Shame on you, Rick Rypien!

How can the league expect to sell the sport if professional players have run-ins with fans?

How could you ask players to respect each other on ice if they did not respect the consumer, the fan who paid their salaries?

I read Manny Malhotra defending his teammate and that's fine. But if I pay good money for a ticket, I would expect not to be attacked by a player, even if I told him my thoughts.

But perhaps that’s too much to expect from a guy like Rypien.
