I find it rather ironic that the 38 points he still needs to trigger his option is the exact number of points he needs to beat Sakic to 8th place all-time at 1612 points. Of course, Sakic won't stay where he is, but still..
a) stop smoking crack
b) you spelled cherepanov's name wrong
he's gonna hit his 80 point trigger and play for us next year when we open the season in prague. and he will play 2 years after that, he's only turning 36 now, he's no dinosaur.
what are you kidding? if he plays next year, that'll be it. he's already stated that he's going to retire when he feels he isn't contributing to the team as much as he feels he should, and that he's likely to finish his career back home.
i don't understand those who think this guy is gonna hang em up at age 37, he is still a ppg guy (at least). with a year playing with gomez under his belt, he should at the very least be as productive next season as he is now, if not more productive over the course of the season. are we watching the same player? he can still go, there's no question.
