It was time for Marchant to retire. He's given all he has. Love the guy's heart and he really steps it up in the playoffs. His loss is a moderate blow to the PK and ES defense, and a huge loss for our faceoffs. We need a good faceoff center more than before now.

As for PK, I'm glad he's retiring too. Not because he's a weasel, but because your health is more important than hockey, and your head is one of the most important and most vulnerable parts. It's hard to diagnose problems, and problems are life-long. He probably should have quit a concussion ago.

There's no reason to rehash the Kariya hate. This is a time to celebrate retirement. Kariya still has one of the most important Ducks playoff goals ever (game 6 Phoenix). That GWG was amazing, and brought the team legitimacy.
