    Jesus dude - haven't heard it put this way before, but it made a lot of sense.

    Sedin Twins Calling it a Career After Season

    Wait - is really likely that Crawford's career is done??? I mean, that's pretty crazy if so.

    Sedin Twins Calling it a Career After Season

    Wow I'm glad you said something - i didn't even watch the video all the way through. Could be wrong, but I doubt officials in other sports show that kind of respect to players! Ya, I know now what happened....I just felt that there was no mention of what was happening at the time, like we just kind of forgot about him until one day everyone was like, "Oh ya, Franzen's career is done, no biggie."

    Sedin Twins Calling it a Career After Season

    Am I the only one who feels what happened with Franzen is extremely bizarre? I mean, maybe I was just way out of the loop and didn't realize it....but I just remember thinking one day that Franzen had been out of the lineup for an inordinate amount of time with not much talk about why and he just never....ever came back. I just thought, ok - it sucks he's out for the season it seems, but he should be ready to go next season. And then you see him on LTIR the next year and i'm thinking....how the hell is that possible? And then casually I learn that it's common knowledge that his career is just done with very little acknowledgement....no swan song....no nothin. Does anybody else feel like this or was I just not paying attention?

    Glad you pointed that out - I overlooked that! But look at the games for Forsberg -- he really was a beast when healthy, as much as I hated the guy! If he played as many games as Sundin he would be far and away the leading point scorer.

    Sedin Twins Calling it a Career After Season

    I agree. I think there is some chance - maybe not much - that he hangs em up even after this season. He goes from a 7mil salary this season to a 3.35mil salary next. Afterwards, he's at 1mil. I don't see him sticking around for that. Has there been any inkling at all of Z retiring after this season? Any word of him guaranteeing a return next season?
  11. https://www.tsn.ca/sedins-close-careers-on-classy-thoughtful-note-1.1044626 Truthfully, I feel like I never got to see these two guys often enough to genuinely appreciate them. I hate to say it, but I feel like they would have been even more appreciated in the world of hockey and the sports world in general had they played in a better market.

    No worries. Some days I'm defensive of Holland where I think that the rebuild is just a necessary evil and missing the playoffs and having bad contracts is part of the process. Which honestly, it is always eventually. Other days I'm like "WTF Holland....Trade Zetterberg! Trade Kronwall! Trade Abdelkader! - Sign Martin St. Louis out of retirement and trade him for a 2nd rd! - Sign Jagr - I don't care if it doesn't make sense!"

    All valid points, and you're probably right. I'm just a dude on a hockey forum spewing stuff after giving it 3 seconds of thought.

    Welp, Dekeyser and Helm both have NTCs....so either could've enforced them, who knows? Someone, somewhere ( I forget who and where so take it for what it's worth) said TOR was offering a 5th round for Glendening but Holland wanted a 2nd. Maybe he was trying to play hardball to get a 4th or 3rd....but I'd have even taken the 5th!
