Tough to hear the latest news on Peat. Let's hope he can turn things around somehow!

For some of the younger readers, this guy was an upcoming, legit force & a big deal coming up with Caps in the early 00's. He was a pleasure to watch in Portland and had some real barn burners in both the AHL and NHL. Best wishes go out to Peat and his family.

Really really tough read, especially since we all loved him so much as a fighter. Lots of mixed feelings seeing so many of our pugilistic heroes in such tough shape. I hope he gets help.

Rough to read.

Not sure that I’d believe that the league and his former teammates would just abandon him, if it was just effects from his playing days.

“The doctors said” that he’s a drug addict. That sounds like something we’ve all probably experienced with friends and acquaintances, none of whom probably played professional sports.

Sometimes you just can’t reach/help people and have to walk away, for your own sanity.

A shitty situation, regardless. Hopefully he can turn it around.

Terrible. I see him active on Facebook sometimes. But I don't think he posts much.
