So Long Ronnie!

After 23 outstanding years and a couple of Stanley Cups (alas, in exile in Pittsburgh) and 3 Lady Byng trophies (as the league's most gentlemanly player). Ronnie Franchise is calling it quits and is retiring as a Hurricane.

I count it one of the greatest sports privileges that I have ever had to have been able to see Ronnie play as often as I could. And let me be the first to say, you'll always be OUR captain.

Here's one of my favorite Ron Francis moments, scoring the game-winning goal in Detroit vs the Dead Things in the 2002 Stanley Cup Finals.
