Linden and Brewer were teammates on Long Island for two seasons.

I am looking for the audio clip from game 6 in 1994 where Jim Robeon makes the call in the final minute. Anybody has a link?

Thank-you Trevor, for all you've done. You almost lead this team to a stanley cup.

Enjoy your retirement!

Dang, it won't be the same without him...

I imagine the players he listed were probably his road roommates? Or something to that effect.

Also, I don't imagine that opening night will be the date his number gets retired, if only because some sort of ceremony for Luc Bourdon is likely to take place, and it would be a weird emotional shift to move from tragedy to cheering on Trevor.

To the one who said the Dick Duff comparison can't be made because Duff has a lot of Cups, well, in addition to "Cup rings" being perhaps the most arbitrary statistic in history (Trevor makes it to within a goalpost and crossbar of a Cup, but he has "nothing" while Ryan Shannon has all this other insight because the result is different? Come on, that makes no sense), I'd also like to point out that Duff played in a 6-team league! Put Trevor on a 1950-60s NHL squad and he'd have a bunch of Cups too. It's not even a statistic. In this day and age, 1 team in 30 wins a Cup.

I'm not saying Trevor should make the Hall (it's way easier for older players to make it anyway, due to a generational bias), but Cups across generations shouldn't have much to do with it. The 4th line left wing on the '50s Habs isn't a better player than Mats Sundin or Eric Lindros.

Trevor is the epitome of class. He was a very good hockey player, but he will always be a great human being.

Did he get injured or something? most players at his age can still play with no problem.

Linden has been done for a while now, but was able to stay around for a few years as a cheerleader pretty much...he just doesn't have the skill to play really any role in todays game.

He was more than a "cheerleader" in the last playoffs participated in by the Canucks, in which he lead the team in points (7), and scored 2 game winning goals. Some cheerleader.

You seem like one of those uneducated fans who can only evaluate performance in goals and assists.

Hopefully you'll grow up...

I used to do that for the first 2-3 years watching hockey too.

Linden had one decent spurt in him with those playoffs (though I do believe most of his points were secondary assists) but other then that he didn't have much left to give at all.

He wasn't good in a checking role, was still used on the PK but it's not like he was god's gift to it, I don't remember him being that great of faceoffs...

He wasn't a fit.. AV said it best pretty much (Then again neither were Richie or Cowan...)

Yeah. He's lost so much skill he was barely more effective than Naslund last playoffs.

Linden would make a way better looking cheerleader than butt-ugly Naslund thats for sure.

I think we need a 'haters' thread for Macke to hate on Linden and Naslund for the rest of the off-season.

That's a jerk-ish thing to say. Considering the circumstances.

those 38 year old guys are probably Career NHL Star calibre players. Teemu Selanne, Joe Sakic, MIke Modanno, Shanahan, Chelios to name a few. I hate to say this, but Linden's calibre is not in the same of the names listed above.

Sad to see Trevor Linden retire - my first favourite player.

And one of my favourite photos - with my all-time favourite goaltender - to commemorate the occasion:
