Former Buffalo Sabres goaltender Clint Malarchuk reflects on turning 50

You may remember Malarchuk from getting his throat slit with a skate as a member of the Buffalo Sabres. Somehow, he survived. Three years ago, he shot himself in the head. Somehow he survived. Deadspin got hold of the transcript of an interview he did for a book on people turning 50. It goes into dealing with depression, reflections on life, and human empathy... all with the backdrop of a career as a professional hockey player. Highly recommended if you have some time.
