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!

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.

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.

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.

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.
