Claude Lemieux attempting a return

From RDS :http://www.rds.ca/hockey/chroniques/260344.html

Basically says that at 43 and beeing retired for 5 years, he now miss the game and beeing with the boys so he wants to play again. Says hes been training hard for 10 weeks and is willing to start in the AHL to prove he can still contribute to an NHL team.

What do you guys think are the odds of a team picking him up?

Heh.

Would add to the already fierce Bruins - Habs rivalry.
Lucic - Lemieux battles would bring to mind the old Neely - Lemieux rivalry for sure.

Believe It Or Not: Claude Lemieux Making A Comeback

Breaking On CKAC.

At age 43, Claude Lemieux has resumed training and will return to play.

Sadly, it might just be being broke.

The 40 years old line is so hard to cross for hockey players...And Lemieux has been inactive 5 years at age 43...

I'd offer him a spot in Hamilton.....





Right beside Don Lever on the bench as an assistant coach.

He should go play with Theo Fleury and try to win the Allen Cup, this could be a great challenge

But I doubt that he would stick to the NHL...

Hopefully, Carbo and Gainey stay away from their old teammate.

Actually he would be an awesome addition in Hamilton as a assistant coach. Or he could work with Lapierre to show him how a real pest plays hockey.
