What's going on with Theo Fleury? First he misses practice, and everyone assumes he's back on the juice. Then we find out he was with his ailing father because the old man had a tumor in his prostate. Man, what a bunch of jerks we turned out to be! But now, the NHl has suspended him for violating his aftercare program. Well, is he or isn't he getting messed up again? Am I the only one who's hoping that little bastard gets his act together so he can continue to entertain us? Who else can score like he does and still find the time to beat up mascots on the side?

It's official: He's gone into rehab again. Exactly 24 hours after I drafted him in a money pool yesterday. Damn it. I hope he gets better though, regardless of hockey pools and such.

True dat. You gotta feel for Theo, even though you wonder how many chances he's going to get in Chicago, or in the NHL for that matter.

hey, as a one-time calgarian, this guy is the ultimate hero for the little guy, and will always be a special player to me. he is a prototypical hockey player who managed his successes in an unprototypical bodyframe. sadly, however he overcame his lack of size, he traded for self-control. the onlt good thing that has come of this so far is that he turned himself in. cheers theo. i mean, good job! good luck little man.
