Congrats Marty. He and Hank were a great duo for a couple of years.

Who's getting the opportunity to grab the backup role now? Anyone waiting in the wings, or will a veteran like Hedberg be sought after?

Think he'd consider coming back a goalie coach assistant or anything? Great locker room guy, I'd love to keep him around

Cam Talbot will be our backup, at least for now.

People are pretty sure he is going to go into broadcasting.

Thanks Marty--I always enjoyed watching you play and loved listening to you talk.

This really deserves its own thread.

Biron was a great part to the team during his first two seasons here. He started to decline last year. I can't blame him for the SJ debacle because nobody bothered to show up, but that St. Louis game was really poor.
I think he would've remained if the team didn't play like such a colossal pile of poo as a whole.

It's tough to see him go. Hopefully he'll land a gig on TSN or NBC.

Happy retirement, Marty.

Maybe the Rangers could hire Marty back as an assistant for SO advice. Afterall, this team doesn't have enough assistant coaches.

And suddenly a sixth and a fifth round pick over 6 years begins to bite the Rangers back. Couldn't see this one coming.

Forget McIlrath/Fowler, I'd like to have Jack Campbell right about now!!!

Sounds like Marty was planning to retire after this season. He had a hard time leaving his family behind to join the Rangers in September. In fact,Marty enjoyed the family time during the lockout. He has a TV job waiting for him.

Quote:
Biron said he came to training camp last month thinking this could be his final year.

“Go and enjoy it,” was his outlook, but he found “it was harder than I thought it was going to be because more and more of my heart was back home.”
Quote:
Biron acknowledged that he would probably join a Canadian network as a hockey commentator, but for now, he said, his life is about his children and helping his wife with her décor shop.

Marty will have a long career on TSN or Sportsnet or CBC.

I had a feeling that was the case. The guy has made quite a bit of money over his career and if they have businesses, there is no reason for him to continue if he has other jobs waiting for him.

Hi -

I hope it's okay i posted in this thread - it seemed like the most sensible one.

Hawks fan - who lives in Toronto - just wanting to let you know that Biron was one of the panelists on TSN tonight during the Habs/Blues game (which was the TSN national game). He was really great - I hope he finds permanent broadcasting work.

He commented on Hertl's 'dangle' (if you will) goal on him) - he said that in the immediate seconds after he was kind of mad - but then was mad at himself for not stopping it.

Anyway, like i said - he was a fantastic panelist and someone who should be able to find immediate work in media/broadcasting.

i haven't checked the tSN website, but they usually post their panel segments - so it might be his intermission panel appearance ends up there.
