Demitra retiring
Can I find here some positive thoughts about following?

After unsuccessful tournament for team and unsuccessful match for a player - standing ovation for player that is retiring (in this case from national jersey).


Did something like this happened in Canada? Or USA?

Bobby Orr, Gretzky?

Dear Pavol Demitra,

Thanks for two years of decent offensive production and no playoff success. You were a pretty good player who never seemed to like it here or fit in. Before the lockout you were awesome, when healthy.



P.S. You always looked a little bit like a turtle.

Also, I believe he's only "retiring" from international play and still playing in the KHL next year.

loved him in STL, sucked afterwards. Minnesota wasn't his fault though.

He was a quality player who was severely misused during his time in Minnesota.

Missed opportunities is the only two words I can think of to describe him.
