I don't think it's
far fetched. The dude wants to win a Cup, and if we're not physically abusing him with minutes, I think he may be down to play until he's 40 in a much reduced role as long as we show significant progression towards that ultimate goal. A big season from the youngsters next year might be the kind of persuasion he needs.
It's going to be a sad, sad day when he does hang them up, though. I know we all appreciate him, but sometimes I think we still undervalue everything he's done for this team. The guy has been the ultimate warrior. It's just insane how he's battled the last six years. It would be just depressing to see him go without a Cup.
