    Post Roman Lyashenko found dead in hotel room

    http://espn.go.com/nhl/news/2003/0707/1577569.html

    Man nothing seems to be going good for the NY Rangers nowadays.

    And from the story it looks like the guy had a bad couple of years as his former coach had been shot, wife died, and 2 of his former teammates were injured in a car accident.

    He was only 24.

    well, that is life.

    and that's what makes life precious --- some live; others do not.

    OMG. That is sad news indeed. Especially since it sounds like a suicide. Hopefully the Stars and Rangers will do something special to honor his memory. I wonder if maybe the Russian Mafia had anything to do with it?

    I didn't know the Russian mafia operated in U.S. ??

    I wonder what the connection is?

    All Russian born players are forced to pay the Russian mafia for "protection" after they are drafted into the NHL. There was a good interview with Sergei Federov on it in a recent Maxim issue.

    Yeah, I have heard the same thing too. They come under fire (including life threats, etc.) if they do not comply.

    I wonder if they killed him somehow, then set it up to look like suicide. If they do an otopsy maybe they could find that out.

    Thats why I thought of that. He was a young guy who's career was just getting under way and had a bright future ahead of him. He was also on vacation in Turkey. Why would he commit suicide? Oh well I'm sure more news will come out eventually.
