OT: Sami Kapanen Retires

Not a bad little player, too bad to see he only got 8 points all year. Great penalty killer and fast as hell, I don't like alot of non-Habs but this guy was easy to like

Never quite figured out why this guy got 6 seasons of around 60 points then completely dropped off the map. Did he get injured or just lost it?

He was their Mark Streit but more useful. He played defence on that playoff run against the Leafs, due to injuries. He was a fantastic PKer and very speedy. Good for him on a solid career.

Leaving one's feet to make a check is cheap, it ain't 'good stuff'.

Nobody is praising Tucker's hit, but Kapanen's fantastic determination and reaction to the hit. Philly getting the OT-winner after that is the icing on the cake.

If my memory serves me right, Kapanen had few injuries that forced him out of the top-6 role. But he definetly adapted well to lesser role.
