|Playing in the NHL is a dream of many a young child; so is being drafted by a pro squad. But that dream died, quite literally, for an Islanders' draft pick Tuesday night when an auto collision claimed his life. Stefan Blaho, a fourth-rounder in 2003, was 21 years old. While few details are currently available (see report about the overseas accident), the situation cannot help but dredge up memories of Dan Snyder and Dany Heatley. Young men, fast cars and an even faster life.
