    Called massive blood loss. :eek:

    Former Buffalo Sabres goalie Clint Malarchuk apparently accidentally shot himself in the chin Tuesday with a .22-caliber rifle at his Fish Springs residence, according to the Record-Courier of Nevada.

    Malarchuk, 47, was taken to Renown Regional Medical Center in Reno by helicopter. Douglas County sheriff's deputies were investigating the incident Wednesday to determine if the shooting was accidental, the paper said.


    Oh, and here's his claim to fame: A skate to the throat in a game against the St. Louis Blues in 1989.

    The skate to the throat remains the most disturbing thing I've ever seen.

    And why is hte paper calling it an accident when the police are still investigating whether or not it was accidental?

    Well, it's either an accident that he shot himself or an accident that he didn't do a better job of it. Take your pick.

    I was at that game. No fuggin' way I'm clicking on that link -- I want to sleep tonight.

    The way I read it, his wife reported it as accidental when she called 911. Po-po aren't so sure, and given his past struggles with depression, the other possibility can't be discounted. Either way, I hope he comes out of it all right.

    A .22 rifle does not just "go off" when the stock is placed on the ground unless the trigger poundage is set at an Olympic-style, dangerously-low level.

    Police have every right to be suspicious about it.

    If I can't get a woman to orgasm, I suppose a snorggle is the next best thing.

    Wait ... what?

    I just watched the clip again; showed it to a co-worker who had never seen it.
