Holy crap, Giguere and Selanne made 312 billion dollars each in their careers in Anaheim. All they did was get to play a game they love, travel around in chartered planes and sleep in luxury hotels while making a ton of cash and working most seasons for only 7 months of the year. So they retire. So what? They both needed to retire years ago. Selanne can barely play in one of the three zones, and he doesn’t do that well anymore (9 goal “victory lap”) season. Giguere has been a hack back-up for a decade.
Giguere and Selanne should stand and applaud while I take a victory lap for spending a fortune to watch them play … this last couple years at half speed. If anyone should cry it’s me the 41 times a year I spend 400 bucks to watch a game.
It’s bad enough I have to watch these two melt ice for the last couple of years, but now I have to watch them do a figure skating routine while adults in the crowd around me are crying like a bunch of babies? Get the fuck off me.
