I agree with this. He has to be bought out first, and I don't think Jim Rutherford would do that to him. They want him to retire with the Canes as much as some of us would like to see him retire here. Rod, Rutherford, nor anyone else wants to see him go out the same way Ron Francis did, but then again Laviolette did win a Cup with him, so I'm sure he could make it work as long as everyone else would want to make it work.
We've seen with some other guys too have kind of a career rebirth when they move to another team. Look at guys like Recchi and Roenick. 2 years ago we thought these guys were out of gas, finished, kaput.
