Thank you Chad Kilger and Oleg Tverdovsky for being trade bait.

Weird to see Anaheim draft picks (at least the ones with NHL careers) hanging them up, although it seems there were extraordinary circumstances at work here.

He never lived up to his draft status, but I thought he was a pretty good third/fourth line player in his NHL career.

As for current players from defunct alumni, we're down to:

North Stars: Modano

Whale: Chris Pronger, J.S. Giguere, Michael Nylander (or is he headed to the KHL?); Brendan Shanahan and Marek Malik are UFAs who have most likely reached the end of the line.

Nordiques: Adam Foote, Owen Nolan. Sundin, if he returns.

Jets: Shane Doan, Kris Draper, Teemu Selanne, Nikolai Khabibulin. Assumedly Tkachuk will sign somewhere. Teppo's probably retiring.

Too bad he had to retire so early. An unfortunate end for someone who was a better center than Lemieux.

Enjoyed watching him with the Frontenacs in the OHL. Thought him and Gratton would have productive careers (they did but not up to where they were picked) and I wish him all the best in his personal affairs. Shows you that hockey is secondary in the grand scheme of things.

This is damn near sig-worthy.
