But of course he can. Just like I have no obligations of liking it if he does either. Especially when it's not about a guy "not having it" anymore but about a guy voicing his displeasure over that bad bad league he's playing it that with this new CBC is about to steal his money. I guess we could have a telethon for him. Don't look but most of the time that a guy retires.....it's just about the fact that he can't play in the league anymore. And usually both sides agrees with this. Now, you have a guy who still has it...who still can contribute. And not only that but his open comment, unless Cole reassures everybody that it was a trade technique, will give Bergevin a harder job to sell Cole at the deadline and get the best he can since his new team will have to face with his "retirement".
