Yeah, that would be good for us but I don't know where his head is at. He is turning 60 soon & has been involved with hockey for a long time now. So he might just want to spend more time with his family now that he's getting up there in age & he also had that bike accident recently as well that could factor into things.

The Flyers would surely offer him some stupid job title that basically has him doing nothing & pay him for it because he's been with the organization for so long if he truly does just want to walk away & spend more time with his family.
