You act like retirement is such an easy and simple thing where you just wake up one morning and say "alright, it's clear I'm gonna have to retire now" We see guys in their 40s struggle with letting the game go, Drury isn't even 35.

Do you know what a degenerative knee CONDITION (it makes no sense to have a degenerative knee) is? It's not a specific diagnosis. It could be anything from arthritis to ligament damage to whatever. It will be telling in the near future if he ends up getting joint/knee replacement surgery. So to act like because he has a degenerative condition meant that he definitely couldn't work himself into a position where he could play is naive as someone that acted like they knew what Peter Forsberg's foot problems exactly meant for his playing career.
I didn't see anything of importance in your post, so why would I bother to read it all?
