OT: Stefan Retired?

Another casualty of the infamous '99 draft. Had no idea he announced his retirement. However, I see he signed with SC Bern of Switzerland. So, did he retire from all of hockey, or just the NHL?

There's retirement paperwork that is submitted that basically states that you forefit all compensation owed to you under any agreement that you may have signed. It also states that if you petition for re-instatement within a years time from the date the retirement papers were officially filed, you have to return to your former team.

After a years time if you then petition to come back I believe you can come back to any team.

Just because you retire from the NHL doesn't mean you can't play overseas.

only good players from 99 draft: Sedins, Havlat, Boynton, Radivojevic, Comrie, Havlid, Hagman, Malone, Miller, Erat, Vrbata, Zetterberg.

I thought i heard about him not being able to play for BERN because of his hip. Thus him retiring completely.

Maybe he had to "retire" in order to get insurance monies..Remember the sad case of Rnger Draftee Stefan Chernerski? (Maybe even Balckburn--I'm not sure)

The '99 draft, one of the most disappointing ever. The talent was there, but the draft class lacked a lot of heart.

Only now has this team recovered from that draft and realistically that is because of what looks like an outstanding 2004 and 2005 draft so far.

Pretty sad how our #4 and #9 picks overall turned out. That said, we wouldn't have been any happier had we traded them for the #4 and #9 players selected in the 1998 or 2000 draft.

I bet he left the NHL after that horrid play in Dallas where he missed an empty net and then the Oilers came back the other way and scored.

It's his legacy. See: Smith, Steve.

Patrik Stefan has been retired for four years. The last three he was just collecting a check.

Stefan was a free agent so he does not owe any team anything. he went over to europe to play. any nhl teams if in need could offer stefan a contract and bring him back at any point. stefan has talent. he was just drafted by the wrong team. last year was an injury filled year for him and he never fit in with dallas.

I really thought he was going to sign with a team like Buffalo or something, and be their second line center setting up Vanek and Hecht and such, putting up 10 goals 45 assists, kinda like a mini-Backstrom. boy was I wrong

I guess just the NHL. The NHL will suffer tremendously with this lose.
