Let all those tears out, guys. Post sad images, stories, and anything else that seems to fit the thread.

They don't necessarily have to be true, just sad.

The single saddest story, ever. Will especially pull the hearstrings of Canuck fans:





Vancouver Canucks sacrifice Cody Hodgson for more grit

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — For Vancouver Canucks GM Mike Gillis, it came down to skill versus sandpaper.
Gillis, who pulled off the biggest trade of NHL deadline day, determined that his team had more than enough of the former and needed an injection of the latter.
So Gillis pulled the trigger Monday and traded away to the Buffalo Sabres a promising player in Cody Hodgson, who has lots of skill, in exchange for a young up-and-coming power forward in Zack Kassian, who has plenty of grit.
Gillis suggested that if he learned anything in last year’s playoff run it was that the Canucks needed to become a more balanced team, one that relied less on its skill.
“It showed me that to get to the Western Conference final you are going to have to grind it out and to do that you need more balance,” he said. “You can’t just have skill and have other teams use less skilled players to try to grind them into the ice every night.
“We wanted to get as fast and as big as we could going into these playoffs and we’ll see how we did.”
Kassian and veteran centre Sami Pahlsson, whom the Canucks acquired from Columbus earlier Monday, are expected to make their debuts when Vancouver closes out a six-game road trip against the Phoenix Coyotes on Tuesday night.
Judged purely on numbers, the Hodgson-for-Kassian deal looks to be a lopsided one in favour of the Sabres.
Kassian, Buffalo’s first-round pick (13th overall) in the 2009 draft, has played more games in the AHL than he has in the NHL this season. In 27 games with the Sabres this season, he has three goals and seven points.
But the Canucks fell in love with his size, speed and upside.
“Well, there’s not much not to like,” Gillis said. “He’s 6-4 and 225 (pounds) and just turned 21 a month ago and he put up almost point-a-game numbers in the American League. For a player who is that physical, who can do that, it’s a rare opportunity you get a chance to get players like that.
“There aren’t many of them around in the league. He still has a ways to go to develop I think into his full potential, but he is an NHL player now who is going to help us in a lot of different ways.”
Gillis intimated that the Canucks were a team that had to lean too much on its skill and its high-powered offence. He decided he was willing to surrender some of that offence — Hodgson had 16 goals and 33 points in 63 games this season — in order to find that better balance.
“The only real power forward we have on our team would be David Booth and with that kind of size and speed (in Kassian) we now have a younger player who’s 21 who has that.”
Kassian said he was initially shocked and then excited by the trade.
“I was not expecting this at all,” he said. “I just want to thank Buffalo. They did a lot for me and I’m very excited to go contend for a (Stanley) Cup now. It’s going to be very exciting. They’re a Canadian team; it’s going to be a lot of fun.”
Kassian suggested playing against him won’t be any fun, which is exactly what the Canucks are hoping for.
“I like to be physical, but at the same time I like to make plays and chip in offensively,” he said. “I like sticking up for teammates and playing the physical game – just try to be an all-around player.”
Hodgson also expressed surprise at the trade and found out about it when was out for a walk early Monday afternoon with Canucks defenceman Chris Tanev.
“I’m still in shock right now actually,” he said. “My phone is blowing up right now; I don’t know what to think. I talked to my family and it’s going to be closer to them, so they’re happy about it. Vancouver’s a great city and really passionate about hockey and has great fans. I really don’t know what to think right now. I’m excited.
“I know it’s a business and I’m thankful they gave me my start here. They drafted me.”
If you're still reading this, please note that it was only an example. I cut out most of the rest of the article, just to fool you into thinking it was a wall of text about the Hodgson trade. It is not, and you are in fact an idiot. Keep reading until you see the word stop. If you're still reading, you've been duped again because you've already seen the word stop. You think you're smart because it says stop again, and a third time? Well you didn't stop, you're still reading. You're so dumb. All hail Yappy.”

“I know it’s a business and I’m thankful they gave me my start here. They drafted me.”

The Canucks also shipped spare defenceman Alexander Sulzer to the Sabres and received offensive defenceman Marc-Andre Gragnani.

In an earlier deal, the Canucks sent two fourth-round picks and minor-league defenceman Taylor Ellington to the Columbus Blue Jackets in exchange for Pahlsson, a proven playoff performer who Gillis said gives the Canucks a shutdown centre.

Pahlsson, who hails from the same Swedish hometown as the Sedin twins, was a key contributor when the Anaheim Ducks won the 2007 Stanley Cup.

“I like the fact he has won, he’s a bigger body who is a defensive player,” Gillis said of the 34-year-old Pahlsson. “That is what you are going to get. There are times, particularly in the playoffs, when you are playing against good teams you need a shutdown player who can play against those big (centres) on other teams.”

Don't wanna open Pandora's box, nor sound like a heartless freak, but this video never really made me sad. Just a girl crying for attention. Crying for help with no one else to turn to, I understand. Very tragic, absoloutely. But it just never made me sad.

Nonetheless, RIP all the same.

To be honest, I was lying. I didn't feel bad at all.
I actually felt a lot of pleasure, and sought out more sad things to laugh at.
Those Cyanide and Happiness Depressing Comic Weeks make be tear up... with laughter.

This actually made me sad :(
