Sakic calling it a career.

Normally a retirement announcement during the offseason I would just post in the Offseason thread, but a player of this caliber deserves his own thread.

Joe Sakic is done, he will announce his retirement on Thursday.

He had a great career and was arguably the Greatest member of the Avalanche/Nordiques franchise in history.

I know one board member will be especially bummed about this ...

He was a great player and had an impressive career.

Total bummer, but I'm not surprised. I saw it coming with the way last season went for him. I read (on tsn I believe), his jersey will be retired on the home opener for the Avs this next season. Too bad he couldn't have played in the Vancouver Olympics, but when your body tells you its time, its time.
