    Guy was a fucking yappy mouth and thought he was God's gift to hockey but the NHL just lost one of their more outspoken players.

    But, please, TSN, don't bring him back as a colour commentator.

    His career spanned 1,252 games. He scored 495 goals and added 675 assists for 1,170 points, and made one trip to the Stanley Cup Final: in 1992, when his Chicago Blackhawks were swept by Mario Lemieux and the Pittsburgh Penguins in four games.

    Among U.S.-born players, he is ranked third in goals behind Mike Modano (507) and Joey Mullen (502).]His career spanned 1,252 games.

    He's an asshole, but probably will make the Hall.

    I'll say this for him: Everywhere he went, he won yapped.

    The best one was his yapping during the '96 playoffs at Patrick Roy who had one of the best comebacks in the history of hockey.

    Apparently he found out there's no market for a clubhouse cancer who hasn't been worth a damn in years.

    Was a great player in his prime. Diminished his on-ice rep by hanging on a couple more years. Definitely in the Hall.

    “I’m retiring; is that still news?”

    Well, if you're text messaging it to a reporter from the city you played in two stops ago, I'm thinking "No."

    What, no mention of him leaving a game in Vancouver early to go to a restaurant because he was a healthy scratch?
     
  9. how is it not newsworthy when a potential Hall of Famer retires?

    When he's scored 22 and 28 points the last two years.

    Wasn't it pretty much understood at the end of last year that he was done?
     
  11. yeah, everybody thought he would, but i still think it's newsworthy when a guy like him - who's played almost two decades - makes it official

    Tim didn't go overboard, but I'm fine with the story
