Funny how this is the first any of us have heard of a possible Fisher retirement

No, there were rumors out of Canada that Fisher was so banged up that he might retire due to injuries. He denied that quickly and is rehabbing from surgery that was performed right after the season ended.
Would we take Grimaldi(SP?) if he falls to us tomorrow? I don't know a lot about him but I've heard good things about his talent despite his size.
It seems he is taking some flack for saying he can ignore his teammates "mistakes" which was a poor choice of wording from him but the kid probably was just flustered. I wouldn't worry about his religious views becoming a distraction to an NHL team. Playing on teams with kids his age I'm sure he has been exposed to a lot of behavior he doesn't agree with it already.
Though admittedly, trying to look at it from the perspective of being a young NHL player. It would be a bit of a buzz kill having a guy who on your team who won't go out with the rest of the team and relax and let loose every once in awhile.
