Just a reminder that the fan-generated public gathering for Rick Rypien is today at Rogers Arena from 2:00 - 8:00 PM. From the Facebook page (that has close to 500 people confirmed going as of now):
To celebrate the life of Rick Rypien we would like to invite all Canuck Fans to meet at the Roger Nielson statue outside of Rogers Arena on Wednesday, August 17th at 2:00pm. We'll stick around all day so feel free to drop by anytime. We plan to bring a big book for everyone to write their condolences in and hopefully we will get the book to the Rypien family.. Please feel more than free to invite other members to the event. Hope to see you all there.
If you make it down there and want to share your thoughts or any pictures you take, please do share them with us via the fanpost/fanshot sections. For those who aren't in the Vancouver area, feel free to use the comments to list your favorite Ryp moment.
