Guys who could still be playing if not for injury
 
I was reading the thread about tough guys, and was thinking that Cam Neely could still be playing right now if it weren't for his injuries, and I was wondering who else there is out there that would probably still be playing today if it weren't for injuries...

Jeff Beukeboom is only 39...

I.am.ca 11-16-2004 05:08 PM

I never liked Jeff till i took him on my team in NHL something, i was down 3-2 for the stanley cup finals against my cousin and he took a slapper from the blueline in the opposing zone and scored with 1 second left.

Made me like the guy, then he retired and it all ended.

I.am.ca 11-16-2004 05:10 PM

What about Ranford, didn't he retire because he pulled his groin one too many times?

Yeah forgot Deadmarsh.

Jason Allison also.
Theo Fleury - mentally hurt is just as worse as physically hurt.
Sheldon Kennedy - same thing as Theo

Well, maybe he'd just play on power plays, then. ;)

Neely and Lafontaine are a little on the elderly side, too - they'll both turn 40 next year.

Pat Peake
Sheldon Kanegneisser
Orest Kindrachuck
Rick Chartraw
Lowell MacDonald
Howie Meeker
Tom Bladon
Steve Buzinski
Cam Connor

Sorry, I couldn't think of anyone after Peake, and I felt like doing some more typing...

Only thing holding him back is that being dead for 70 years thing. Otherwise I think he would be good for occasional use on the power-play, plus a good presence in the dressing room...

According to an article in the Hockey News about no touch icing, he slid in trying to win a race for the puck and ruined his ankle. He needed about a billion surgeries. If I remember correctly his retirement took a few years of attempts to come back. Quite a shame, really.. he was pretty young.
