Can't really blame Rick, imagine having an entire career ahead of you and having had so much potential and then it just falling completely out of your hands, that is ROUGH. Rick clearly loves the sport and the team, I can't really fault the guy. Is he in denial? No doubt about it, but this is a human being we are talking about and denial isn't necessarily an uncommon thing.

I'd probably be trying to do the same thing in his spot, though at some point he really does need to hang em' up. There is still PLENTY of ways that he can stay involved in Hockey and have a rewarding career (on top of still getting his contract money).
