One last game to say goodbye.

This just feels weird. Conroy should not be retiring right now.

I hope he plays one last game. Even if his numbers don't say so, he's one of the all time great Flames simply for his off ice contributions.

It's the only conclusion that would be forgivable, IMHO.

(Feaster losing his job more than Conroy getting it)

Man, I wish that Conroy would at least be around for 1 more playoff run (meaning Flames would have to make it this season, tough but possible.)

This is NOT the way I wanted to see him go out.

I'm surprised the Islanders haven't picked him up, aren't they in the market for any free assets?

I think they want goalies - although Poulin isn't doing bad at all.

Mind you, Snow may be jonesan to pick another useless, unnecessary fight with a guy who wants to be somewhere else.

His team lost something like 9-1 and he came out with a bunch of his teammates to have a few beers and just sit and chat. Great guy, great player, great person.
I remember that game. It was in 05-06. We won 10-1. Pominville and Hecht got hat-tricks that night.

It appears that Conroy will not be retiring Thursday according to the Flames' website.

Conroy will take the upcoming all-star break to make a decision on his future. Conroy will speak publicly Thursday about what has transpired this week but, contrary to speculation, he will not be announcing his retirement.
It looks like Conroy has played his last game in the NHL. I don't think he'll go to Abbotsford and he shouldn't have to. It would be great to see the Flames give him a hockey operations job after retiring. He's a class act. I'm confident he'll make the right decision about his future no matter what he decides to do.

Conroy is the definition of class... I feel honoued he played for my team for half of his career (507 out of 1009 games)... he in my mind is one of the greatest Flames to ever lace em up... he may not have been the most talented player but he was a Flame through and through... no matter what Conroy chooses it will be a sad day... I just hope if he decides to play out his contract and go to Abbotsford the organization gives him the recognition he deserves and they put the "C" on his jersey for the remainder of the season (no disrespect to Quintin Laing and the job he has done as captain)
