i never wholly understood this sentiment. sure, in the ideal world of the fan, i'd like the franchise player to retire as part of that franchise. but if i'm a professional athlete and still think i can play and contribute to a team, and my former team doesn't want me back, then i'd try to take my talent elsewhere. it's his life. his decision. whatever happens this season, years from now, brodeur will be a new jersey devil. do people remember bobby orr's end in chicago? or pat lafontaine with nyr? trottier in pittsburgh?
