Timmy doesn't owe anything to me, to you, to any of the fans in Boston. But he does owe a year of service to the Boston Bruins.

Thanks for the Cup. It is probably the greatest memory of my short life so far. But no thanks for walking out at the end of it. If you want to take a year off wait til your contract expires OR retire. The decision to walk away wasn't to help the Bruins so it really doesn't matter if him retiring "hurts" the Bruins. It was managements choice to sign him to a long term over 35+ contract knowing that they would be liable for the hit in every year no matter what unless he was traded.

There are rules put in place if you are done with hockey you retire. You don't just bail on your contract. You can, in fact unretire if you so please, but if you want to stop playing hockey before your contract is up you should retire. Period.
