> Congratulations to Scott Mellanby
on a very good career. Mellanby announced his retirement
after 21 seasons in the NHL. He finishes with 364 goals and 476 assists for 840 regular season points in 1,431 games. They're not Hall of Fame
numbers but he may get his own "rat trick" display in the hall..
> Chris Chelios
has been very impressive in this year's playoffs. At 45, he continues to shut down the opposition and chips in with some offense now and then. I'm putting the over/under on his retirement age at 48.
> When did Ilya Kovalchuk
turn into a perimeter player?
> Pop quiz. Three players eating up almost $21 million in cap space
. One is current Rocket Richard winner. One is a former Art Ross winner. One is a former Conn Smythe winner. Despite an increasing salary cap the owner wants to cut salary. You may be forced to trade one of the big three
. You're Jay Feaster, what do you do?
