I have him on my fantasy team. It was a last-second pickup. I was hoping he would have some kind of final push in his last year. I guess it won't happen now.
Here is how Yahoo Fantasy hockey put it to me:
"Recommendation: He's out indefinitely and reports on CBC's Hockey Night in Canada broadcast hinted that his season may be over. This would be a sad, sad way for an icon to end his career."
Thanks. A simple "he is hurt" would have been sufficient.
So, other than the purely selfish reason I have, this sucks.
