08:26 AM ET 04.11 | Bob Hartley was taking in a playoff baseball game when he learned of the terrible news. "I leave for the game. In the fourth inning, I'm sitting there at the ballpark with my wife, Ilya Kovalchuk and my video coach and we get the news: Danny Snyder's dead. I rush back to the hospital, and he's in a wide-open room, the machines were all gone. The mom wanted me to go and see him for a final time. You're there, but you can't believe it. That teaches you a life lesson. So, yeah, hockey's important. But ..." But. Hartley still has the strap of Dan Snyder's watch, given to him by LuAnne Snyder. He's worn it in every game he's coached since Oct. 5th, 2003, as a reminder.

And now Hartley has a permanent reminder of how an idiot owner named Edwards ,and a brain dead Pres like King, can kill a franchises chance for success.

Yup he downed a 12 pack in less than an hour and killed his best friend on purpose..just so he could deal with it the rest of his life.

OK, that's a drinker. Beats my best.

Can help but feel sorry for Bob Hartley. A man shouldn't have to carry that with him the rest of his life.

On the other hand .... it doesn't seem to bother Heatley none. He carries on as he was the only thing in the whole universe that matters.
