Teppo Numminen Retires

From an awful google translation, and a link on Elite Prospects.

Repo man! Always one of my favourite defensemen around the league.

41 years old, I guess it was about time. Too bad he couldn't participate in the Finnish olympic team one last time.

A wonderful, underappreciated defenseman.

So sad injuries prevented him from winning the cup with the Sabres in -06.

Teppo goes out the way he played: quietly. A better defenseman has not worn a Coyotes jersey.

A coolly efficient player in his prime, and one of the league's true class acts.

Classy guy....His perseverance is a testament to what all players should strive for. How he never won the Masterton is ****ing beyond me.

Agreed, I had him marked down for that this year hands down.

A class act hangs 'em up. Sorry to see him go, but it was a great career.

One fewer ex-Jet in the league

Teppo was very underrated even in his prime.

Always has been a class act and a role model

Thanks for all the memories and you really should've won the Cup!

Will be sorely missed on the national team. When I saw those tears after 2006 I thought for sure he would hang in there to win the gold in 2010.

I always liked him. He's of a dying breed of former Winnipeg Jets that are still around the league.

Who's left? Selanne, Doan, Tkachuk, and Khabibulin?

I'm sure he could still play 2010 if he REALLY wanted to
