No, sign a one day contract! I hate when Legends bow out respectfuly. Lidstrom deserves to have his day on the ice in his pads, not in a three-piece suit. Yzerman did it the same way. I know it the most honourable thing to do, but the sight of them walking off the ice for the last time in their gear is the perfect end to a career.
Who's next in line for the C? They say you can't fallow a legend, but Nick did just fine for six years. Now you can't fallow a legend, who replaced a legend.

And Heatley's a legit good guy as well. I worked with a lady who is close friends with his parents...got to meet him one day, really nice, down-to-earth guy. I'm glad to see him get a national showcase today.
