That's terrible....

Did he have a concussion history? Cerebral bleeding can be caused by head trauma.

He's leaving somthing like $14M on the table. He's not walking away from hockey.

He wants to play again.

I've heard that he prefers the smaller markets where he can just disappear whenever he wants.  If he comes back my guess is it'll be a non traditional market.

Tampa Bay for $100k cap hit, somehow.

Wow. I would love to have been a fly on the wall to hear the discussion that lead to this decision. What a bunch of BS.

Smaller markets .... aka.... anywhere but Winnipeg.

I don't really care if they extend 3 on 3 or not, as long as it's not the shootout that ends the game.

Just let it end in a tie.

I would prefer a tie to a shootout, but I think 5 more minutes of OT would be great.

It's not the shootout I hate it's the loser point.  All games should be worth 2 points, or all games should be worth 3.

Not some 2 and others 3....

3 points for a win

1 for a draw

0 for a loss

 

No Americanised shoot outs or extra time. Didn't do enough to win in 60 minutes. Tough shit.

The shootout idea came from Europe...

They should get rid of extra time in all sports.

Baseball:  Have a home run hitting contest.

Basketball:  Free throw or 3pt shooting contest.

Football:  Field Goal Kicking contest.

This will speed things up and make it much more exciting for the fans.

All I think of regarding this is TFC in 2016 fighting the whole season to get to the finals, only to lose everything on penalty kicks. What a shit way to lose a championship.

Not only that, but Seattle didn't have a shot on goal the entire game...until penalty kicks.

They held a team to zero shots on goal and didn't win?

We only use extra time for 2 legged cup fixtures. Any league fixtures for football ends in a win, loss or draw.
