Why Hockey players rule: I know that other sports players do things like this, but it's usually backed by a ton of PR including photos. I've heard about more stuff like this (and experienced it as a child when I lost a cousin) from NHL players than any other sport.

Very cool story. This stuff actually happens in every sport for many causes, etc., as New York Giants Head Coach Jim Fassel is currently doing for the family of 9-11 victim and firefighter Frank Palombo. Great story TJ, thanks for sharing

I know it's probably just because they're the home team, but I have to believe the Red Wings are the best example of this year in and year out. I attribute a lot of that character to Steve Yzerman, who leads by example.
