As Dany Heatley Moves On

From John Branch at The New York Times,

The Snyders are still trying to shape and build the legacy of their son — most recently with an 18,000-mile trip to all 30 N.H.L. arenas — while coping with something that time and distance has not healed.
The lasting image from Dan Snyder’s death, in this town and across hockey’s sprawling landscape, is painted in forgiveness. Moments after her son died, LuAnn Snyder entered Heatley’s hospital room. He would recover from the broken jaw and the torn-apart knee, but perhaps never from the survivor guilt. She squelched his apologies by saying that he would always be forgiven.

But the more success Heatley has, the more likely his past will be recalled. The desires of Heatley and the Snyders appear, on the surface, to be in opposition: Heatley is trying to move on, the Snyders do not want anyone to forget.
