Paul had a desire to keep playing. I don't blame him. He dedicated himself to the game his entire life. It's hard to switch that part of you off. Nothing he could do in the late stages of his career can take away from his accomplishments of his peak years. I don't know what Coffey is doing in his post playing career now, but up until 2001, it obviously wasn't exciting enough to him to justify quitting the game he loves.

As a fan, I admire a player that will keep playing until he can't make it in the league anymore. It shows a passion for the game.
I'm with you.
