Scott Stevens

TSN makes a good point. Everyone has been thinking of the the problems with the NHL and not about how next time we see a game some of the top guys in the NHL won't be there.

Do you think that Stevens would play again if they cancelled next season too?

Just something to think about.

I think Scotty will come back for one more year, knowing him and the type of competior he is he's not going to go out the way he did.

Scotty will definitely be back and hopefully for two more years.

Everybody wants him to come back, but I think after a year of rust it would be way too difficult. Scott Stevens, Mario Lemieux, Ron Francis, Eddie Belfour, the list goes on. Conversely, does anyone think this will help players with multiple concussions?

Scotty will most likely come back IF there is hockey next year. If not, forget it. I'd also forget about two years too. He's old. He's very old for the type of player he is. He also has nothing to prove and has a family. The competitive edge isn't enough to keep a 43 year-old man in prime condition. He needs something to bring him back. I can see him playing one more year to prove he is ok from the concussion, but two years? I'd be shocked.

I agree. But if there's no season next year, I'll no longer expect to see him again on the ice. Obviously, he's getting old, and in spite of all his willpower and desire, it will be hard to play again after two years. I just hope there'll be a season as soon as possible so he'll be able to play again as a Devil.

He had a terrible last game against Pittsburgh last year, and he didn't know he would not come back. I'd be really disappointed, for him and for the fans, if he would be forced to retire because of the lockout, after such a career.

This year off was probably the best possible situation for him, giving him ample time to recover with out needing to rush him back. I believe he will probably play the next hockey season (whenever that is) and then retire.

I thought Stevens would be back for the 2003-04 playoffs, but he wasn't. He's getting old. I hope he can play one more season, but I wouldn't wager money on it.

I think he was on record as saying he might not be back if this was a lost season: that being out a year would make things difficult . He probably has about 50mil in the bank. If he feels good enough to really get in good shape he'll likely try to play out the contract. If he feels lousy he might just hang them up.

I think Stevens will play until he is 43. He has stated many times he wants to play two more seasons. he won't even come close to playing as bad as Igor did. LOL!
