Lee Sweatt Retires, We Need Another Defenceman

Via Garrioch and Norton Sports, not trolling. He is apparently looking in outside business. We need another defenceman for Bingo

Did we not just sign this guy? That was fast.

Something must have come up: a business opportunity, some family-related reason.... no way he just retires on a whim like that. I know the guy had some serious foot injuries last year, maybe they're too much/ too severe to make a full recovery from?

I wish him the best.

Paul Ranger retired simply because he didn't enjoy it anymore. He was a legit NHLer, too.

I liked him when he played in Finland. Is there any reason why he retired? He wasn't injured was he?

Happy retirement days Lee!

True enough.

I just think that if he were leaning in that direction (no desire to play anymore), he wouldn't have signed a contract with a brand new team so recently. But that's strictly just an opinion.

If he did actually retire because he didn't want to play anymore (like Ranger), I applaud his decision to do it early enough to afford him the opportunity to find out what he really wants to do in life.

Sucks for Bingo. Sweatt would've been a great AHL'er.

I have really good looking girl friends going there, so I'm gonna show them his picture, get them to seduce him, and eventually I will swoop in and befriend him. Too bad about Sweatt. We will either trade a fwd prospect with not much upside or sign a young CHL DMan IMO. Regardless, we wont be able to replace Sweatt effectively.

I don't think Murray will have a problem replacing him, it's just weird that he retires the same off-season he signed a contract.

I wonder how long he Sweatted over this decision.
In the end, I'm sure it was no Sweatt for him.







Oh, this is terrible news! What will I do with all these Sweatty puns now?!

I'd be stoked if we signed either one of Hannan or Campoli, as it would most definately be the end of Kuba in a Sens jersey.


or perhaps we could sign Ranger.......anyone here go to Ottawa U and know the guy personally?

Seems a little unprofessional, but no real loss.

maybe they can convince Ben Blood to drop out in his last year and play in Binghamton.

With all the Bingo injuries as the season dwindled down into the playoffs they still managed to find a way. I'm sure Murray will do the same. Derek Smith wouldn't have insta-retired...
