Tampa Bay Lightning left wing Gary Roberts announced his retirement today after a 21-year career that included 1,224 games, 910 points and a Stanley Cup title.

''Today, I am officially announcing my retirement from the National Hockey League, said Roberts. I am extremely grateful for having had the opportunity to be a part of this great league. The game has been so good to me and I will always be thankful for having had so many years doing what I loved to do.
Quote:
"Gary has done everything we could have asked or expected of him this year," said Lightning Executive Vice President and General Manager Brian Lawton. "Although we wish things had been better to date for the club, we are extremely grateful to Gary for his contributions both on and off the ice. His leadership, professionalism and guidance will be felt for years because our young players were able to watch, listen and learn from one of the true greats of the game.

"We wish Gary and his wife, Michelle, all the best as they prepare for a new addition to their family and we hope, that if and when the time is right, Gary and his family consider working with the organization in another capacity."

Didn't the Packers say that about Favre one time like 10 years ago?


Best wishes to Gary!

This after the Lightning told Gary they wanted him to come back to finish the season? Classless!
