I'm wondering about the timing of this announcement... Do they do it today so that an even bigger announcement can be made tomorrow or Friday? Glad to see Todd stay with the organization.
With Marchant gone and Chip most likely not coming back now we have both the third and fourth line center position to fill. Would have to think it was timed just before Friday. Kind of makes me think Konopka is coming here to replace Todd.
This was expected and all, but it's still weird to think about that Marchant isn't going to be out there protecting every lead they have in the final minutes of the hockey game. Great career Todd, congrats and thanks for everything!!
Going to miss Marchant, although it was time. Really sad to see Kariya have to hang up the skates. Would have loved to see him back here over the last few years, but at the very east I wanted to see him in the league. It's a shame that concussion issues have taken out another great player. Both will be missed.
Also side note, I was in Detroit at the game when Marchant scored the triple overtime goal. Awesome.
Great for Marchant. He was an important player for us in our cup run. Also he is the team t-shirt maker. On another note, glad to see Kariya retire. He made his money. NO need to risk your health in the future.
Marchant was awesome and incredibly underappreciated in his time in Anaheim. I'm glad he's staying on in a front office role. Congrats to Todd on a great career.
Meh to Kariya. I'm glad he's not coming back because a) I don't ever want to see him play for Anaheim again and b) as much of a dick he is, I wouldn't want to see him suffer permanent damage as a result of another concussion.
