Do the Mania GMs have any idea why Ed Sanford stopped playing NHL hockey at age 27? It's strange for a player who was supposedly playing at an All-Star level earlier in his career to leave the league at such a young age.

Was it because his all-star performances came against a weak forward group, and he was pushed out by a stronger group of young forwards that was entering the league?

Was it an injury? Poor conditioning?

Or did he just not want to play for Chicago?

A few other young, high scoring forwards from that period had trouble sticking in the NHL into the late 50s. Paul Ronty, Bep Guidolin, Danny Lewicki, Dutch Reibel. Were they unable to keep up as the quality of play rose?
