yup, contract just means if he plays, he plays in Anaheim. doesnt mean he has to play. if this is true he will be terribly missed, but no fan can hold anything against him for it. he is the best thing that has ever happened to the Ducks and has earned the right to do whatever he wants. all we can say is THANK YOU!
1 step closer, but I'll wait until there's an announcement before I get all sentimental.
But I don't understand the "not having to deal with questions leading up to the wedding." It seems like the media is already constantly asking questions about whether he retires or not, if he had announced it earlier I'd think it would mean fewer questions. Although the news might "upstage" the wedding. But it's not like a hockey player getting married is news in LA.
Haha, dentures. "If you don't play out your contract we'll take away your teeth!"
