Not surprising but sad. I hated how well he played in the playoffs against the Leafs.

That's too bad. He was a force in the playoffs.

Now the Kesler offer sheet makes *more* sense

He had a pretty good career. Too bad for him he had to be sacrificed for the Wings to take the next step as a club.

Im torn, on one hand I wanted him back to his best, on the other hand, I hated him pissing about with the comeback and now Im glad the Flyers can move on (and it seems they already have!)

Good luck in whatever you next.

Disappointing news. I loved how he played that year in the playoffs (don't remember the exact year as I am a Western Conference guy). Good classic Canadian hockey.

Good luck to him.

He came into his own as the Flyers captain and if it is true that he's retiring then his leadership will be solely missed. But he's probably come realized that eventhough he gave it his best shot to come back, his health comes first. Hopefully he remains with the Flyers in some capacity, maybe helping out with the Flyers coaching staff in some way. All the best Keith!

It was the Holik hit that caused the initial concussion. After that, it was all downhill.

Poor guy. Was looking forward to him coming back this year, unfortunate that he isn't. Maybe he'll make a comeback in a year a two if he feels better?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't he 33?

That sucks.

I was at his last game... He got booed after the collision with Perezhogin because people thought he was taking too long and from where we were it looked like a light contact. Whudda thunk...

Hope Primetime feels good again someday, away from hockey that is. Was a big fan of his as a redwing.

It's too bad another good player has to cut his career short because of a concussion. Just when Primeau looked like he was ready to be a dominant player.

People should have booed Perezhogin. It was a cheap shot and hopefully Perezhogin gets what he deserves one day. He has proven to be coward.

By far the guy I have hated the most in the NHL for the past decade. But...I am a Red Wings fan, so its a little understandable. Atleast he brought Brendan Shanahan to Detroit, right? So, its not all bad.

Honestly though, its always sad to see a player go out when he doesnt want to. He was a tough player who became a different player after leaving Detroit.

Adios Keith!

Hate all you want, but that was a clean hit. As stated before, it wasn't that hit that did all the damage, but that was the final straw. Too bad he couldn't recover. He'll be missed.

Sacrificed???

He was holding out because he thought he should have been the #1 center. Yes...ahead of Fedorov and Yzerman. He didnt want to play for the Wings anymore. As I said before, Primeau was young and immature when he was a Red Wing. He came into his own later in his career. But he was a...and I HATE using this term, but it fits...a big cry baby with the Wings.

Sacrifice? LOL

well, im not the one to judge the hit.. maybe it was clean.
either way, Perezhogin should be banned from the sport for life because of this imo.

What does the Stafford incident have to do with Primeau retiring? Jesus, can we leave the "burn Perezhogin at the stake" sentiments for another time and simply wish Primeau well in his early and unfortunate retirement.

Sorry to see him go. It was interesting to watch him mature over the years. A real playoff warrior is the best compliment I can give him.
