Expected to make announcement with team presser soon, had already told team.

Tomas, thank you for all the great years! Thanks for taking a beating game in/game out. Thanks for inventing your own language!

Sad, but it had to happen eventually.

May he the years he spent making us happy be returned to him in length and happiness many times over.

In the crease, outta the crease. In the crease, outta the crease. Thanks, Homer. You were a very unique player, a pleasure to watch, and an integral part of three championship teams, and your personality provided much entertainment for the fans.

And thus rides into retirement the last active member of the '97, '98, '02 and '08 teams. An era has ended.

As sad as I am to see an "old timer" go, I agree it's the right decision. Godspeed!

Thanks so much Holmer, what a great player he has gone through a lot of trouble for this team. One of the very best infront of the net.

It is the right decision, enjoy your well earned retirement, sad to see you go.

Time for the next generation of Wings under Z

NHL Goalies all around the country and world are breathing a sigh of relief this morning.

Congratulations on a fantastic career, Homer! 1206 total games played, 289 total goals, 338 total assists, 1 Gold Medal, 4 Stanley Cups, and one hell of a set of brass balls.

Now I need a new favorite player!

All the best Homer! You had me laughing many times during games watching you do your thing in front of the net, and after the whistle.

I'll never forget your sacrifices that helped make this team become champions. Forever in my favorite Wings memories, Homer you will truly be missed.

One of my very favorite Wings, I will miss you, Homer. The goalies in the league celebrate the departure of your large red butt. I will never forget you scoring from every possible angle in 2002, all while falling down or sitting on your afore-mentioned rosy derriere.

Best of everything, friend. Enjoy retirement and playing pick up hockey with Nick in Sweden.

I too was hoping he would ride out this season with us, but when it is your time; it's your time. Thanks for everything Holmer. Playing in front of the net will never be the same because of you.

Thought I saw somewhere that Homer & the family were going to stay in the Detroit area once he's retired. I'm hoping he takes over Murph's job between the benches on FSD broadcasts.
