yup, When I stopped playing hockey I got into coaching and it's the same thing.
This summer I was thinking of stoping to coach but then my friends dad called me up and asked me to join his staff. I did and now that it's a month we've been on the ice, I'm happy i decided not to quit.
I would have missed the feeling of being in a team.
He's pretty bad if anyone has seen him in the old-timers the last couple of years. He would be the slowest player in the nhl... and yes slower than Mario Lemieux (although mario has his reasons for being slow at times)
Just imagine...Put him on the Bulldogs, have him kick ass and do a proper comeback into the NHL. Bring him up near the playoffs, for the 100th anniversary...Then in the playoffs he'll score like 20 goals and win the cup. What a story. It's destiny.
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?
haha, he was beyond washed up when he retired. Its time to move on, Claude.
His best bet into the nhl is to try and get on a coaching staff...
