I was at first surprised to hear that BG was actively trying to negotiate a new contract with Q, it just seemed contrary to the direction in which I thought this organization was heading. Don't get me wrong, Q always wore the CH on his sleeve, never shyed away from the media, and was one to drop his gloves for his team-mates (I still cringe at that fight where his finger ended up at a 90 degree angle to the rest of his hand). However, time is not forgiving, and all his savvy and leadership are offset with what are now very slow feet and legs. In today's NHL, that is ultimate death for a D-man.

So, Q, thanks for the memories and your contributions. I am also quite happy to see the commitment by management to move some of our younger blueliners into the fray!!
