After rehabbing for most of the season, Elias decided to retire. They did a retirement ceremony thing last night.

He once scored this goal, which was awesome.

Hockey players play forever... i think Thornton and Jagr played when I was in middle school... plus I always thought we were destined to have Ryan Miller one day, so that's still out there

Vancouver fired Willie Desjardins. It'll be interesting to see if he ends up back in the Stars organization

Lombardi will probably have a new job by the end of next week. Sutter might be done for good.

Lombardi's been awful the last few years. A lot of nonsensical moves.

Throwing this here too. Eichel told the team he wouldn't sign an extension if Bylsma remained head coach
