"I feel a good opportunity to leave the sport," he continued.
Do not give up the hope of the Stanley Cup

However, Canadians opens to continue the Florida Pantera organization.
– This is my home and I still want to participate in the hockey I love. After all, I might not have won the Stanley Cup on ice, but maybe I could find my name in a different way. It would not be the same, but it would still be a feat.
