Darcy Tucker Calls it Quits

http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/story/?id=335903

Could never stand the guy, but I always respected the fact that he never backed down from anyone, regardless of the fact that he was a shrimp by NHL standards. He had a lot of potential during his younger years, and a few good NHL seasons statistically. I always had the feeling though that his body wasn't gonna be able to keep going until the age of 40. Guys that play that gritty of a game, while barely weighing 180lbs, can only go for so long...

Best wishes to him nonetheless!

One of my favourite Leafs. After he was bought out, he was never the same but with his style of play, not too surprising he lost it and wasn't as effective anymore.

I'll always remember him diving into the Sens bench and that hilarious elbow by Kovalev and him getting the crazy eyes and pounding him.

Sad day. He was one of my favourite players back when he was with the Leafs. Hopefully he gets a job within hockey.

Played his role very well in his earlier days. Had he been able to keep his emotions in check a bit better could have been one of the most effective ****disturbers of the last 20 years.

I missed Tucker when he left Toronto, even if he was starting to drop off.

Fond memories. Thanks for those, Darcy.

Edit: Including watching him play here in the AHL for the Fredericton Canadiens. :p

I'll miss Tucker and his perpetual "**** I AM SO HIGH RIGHT NOW" expression on the ice.






He'll have my respect.

Put him and Peca on together, amirite?

Actually, from the tsn article:
Quote:
As for what's next, the "next chapter," Tucker intends on entering the next phase of his professional life with as much intensity as he played and has partnered with his longtime representative, Carlos Sosa in forming Turning Point Sports Management, where he will spend this year consulting and recruiting young players, while working towards becoming a certified agent.

He put up 3 20-goal seasons for the leafs because they had no other options.

Dirty hit on Peca ruined his career

Unfortunate as I thought he still had more to give in terms of his playing career. He was a pain in the rear to play against, but he had underrated skill, a great gritty game and some pretty memorable moments.

Happy retirement, Darcy.

As a Sens fan I'm not the biggest Tucker supporter, but I never hated him. He's a player you would hate when he's on the other side, but love when he's on your side. He had a good career and I wish him the best going forward.

I wish you could bottle Darcy Tucker's spirit and passion for the game. There have been so many guys who brought better skill sets and natural gifts to the rink but came away with less because they didn't have what Tucker had. Good luck DT.

No, he scored 20+ goals three times with the Leafs is because he was willing to pay the price in scoring areas and stand in front of the net on the powerplay. The reason he was effective in producing points is because he played his role well. Given his small stature, it wasn't an easy task for him and it often led to injuries.

I'm pretty sure that was Ryan Hollweg.
