Ex-Flyer Rod Brind'Amour announced his retirement (Canes to retire his jersey Feb 18)

One of my favorite former Flyers retired today. Sad sad day.

RALEIGH, N.C. -- Rod Brind'Amour is retiring after 21 NHL seasons to take an unspecified job with the Carolina Hurricanes.

Quote:
RALEIGH, NC – Jim Rutherford, President and General Manager of the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that the team will honor former captain Rod Brind’Amour by retiring his No. 17 sweater prior to the Hurricanes’ game against the Philadelphia Flyers on Friday, Feb. 18, 2011. Brind’Amour announced his retirement from hockey on June 30.

“There is no image of our franchise more memorable than that of Rod Brind’Amour, our captain, hoisting the Stanley Cup above his head, the emotions from a lifetime of hard work and dedication pouring out of him,” said Rutherford. “There is no doubt that Rod’s number belongs in the rafters of the RBC Center, and February 18 will surely be a very special night for our fans and everyone connected with the Hurricanes organization.”

Originally drafted by the St. Louis Blues in the first round, ninth overall, in the 1988 NHL Entry Draft, Brind’Amour, 39, completesd his career ranked 16th in NHL history in games played (1,484), 44th in assists (732), 46th in points (1,184) and 54th in goals (452), in 21 seasons with St. Louis, Philadelphia and Carolina. The Ottawa, Ont., native debuted with the Blues during the 1989 Stanley Cup playoffs after completing one season at Michigan State, and scored a goal on his first NHL shot against the Minnesota North Stars. He was named to the NHL’s All-Rookie Team in 1990, after scoring 61 points (26g, 35a) in 79 games for St. Louis, and played in the NHL All-Star Game while a member of the Flyers in 1992. Brind’Amour represented Canada in the 1998 Winter Olympics in Nagano, Japan, and won back-to-back Frank J. Selke trophies as the NHL’s top defensive forward in 2005-06 and 2006-07, as a member of the Hurricanes.

Who doesn't love Rob? Great career, glad he got to hoist the Stanley Cup, and I hope he does well for himself in retirement.

Apparently you don't, considering his name's Rod.

I think Brind'amour's presser today may just be him announcing that he's finally going to take everyone's advice and get a nose job. Look for him to still be on the ice next year, as well as on People Magazine's 50 Most Beautiful People list.

Definitely a sad day if he calls it quits. One of the hardest working players for sure.

Tons of respect for this guy. Glad he was able to get the Cup.

Part of me can't really imagine him retiring yet for some reason. He just seems to me to have a little more left in the tank. I dont know.

According to Canes fans, he has nothing left in the tank, and hasn't for 2 seasons.

Rod Brindamour

is



One of my favorite players growing up, and went in what was an even trade in my eyes which benefited both clubs, and brought my favorite player to the Flyers. I was sad to see him go, but he accomplished so much and won himself a Cup. Great career, sad to see him go, but sometimes you just gotta hang them up.

Great career for Brindy. Kinda wish he'd sign a 1 day contract to retire as a Flyer, but I can't see it happening.

I like Brindy, but he definitely needs to retire. He is a shell of his former self. He barely managed to get 19 points last year and he's been 2nd worst in +/- for two years running.

Good luck to him in the future.

True....stats don't lie I guess. Maybe it's more that I wish he still had something left.

That thought crossed my mind as well, but I can't see it happening either. But I'd love it if it did.

If Carolina is smart, they'll keep him on staff as a strength and conditioning coach.

Brind'amour doesn't sound like he is ready.

Not a sad day. He's had a great career, a respected player and leader, and has won the ultimate prize. Be happy for him!!

Congrats Brindy! We still cheer you when you come to the Wach!

Always wore 17's on my sweaters growing up playing hockey because of him, I'll never forget when he scored those two shorties in one pk. Probably will always be my favorite hockey player.

As far as I'm concerned, Brindy > Primeau

Wouldn't call 25 a goof though, lol.

I hated the big goof. Everywhere he went, he always caused trouble. He caused trouble in Detroit. He caused trouble in Carolina. And yet, Bobby Clarke dealt for that big goof and he even caused trouble here (need I remind everyone how he verbally threw Barber under a bus). Nope, I don't miss that piece of crap at all. I really missed Roddy and felt he was the much better player of the two and he was a warrior. He was the ultimate Flyer and besides Tocchet, every Flyer forward should watch game tape of Rod and build their game around the way he played.

The best thing Brindy did was having his wife give Lindros some stress relief.
