Damn. An entire career of riding the bus in hopes of getting a shot in the show, only to be exiled to Des Moines. I hope nobody gives Oettinger this glimpse into his future.

Nice career for Nisky. I don’t know his injury history Since he left Dallas, but leaving the game before it completely wrecks your body is a wise decision. And if he has been responsible, he has enough money to live comfortably for the rest of his life. Not everyone has to play til they’re 40, especially if you’re not into it anymore.

OR, does he see what a pain in the ass everything is going to be going forward and decided to bail for that reason? Likely salary rollbacks/escrow losses, more bubbles, no fans, masks, etc. Seems like a beating.

I think he's making the right decision. He won a Cup, has gotten well-paid, and is probably feeling the physical beating of years in the NHL.

I've been wondering how many players will hang them up, either retire under contract or not, just because of the safety/cluster going forward. I'd think there would be more than a few.

I was at the practice with the twins when the team gave him the tricked-out Nisky-mobile. Yeah, I feel old.

Sounds like it could be a thing.

Easier to post this picture from Razor of the Nicky-mobile than to find my own.

Meh. He was just a warm body out there after that first season. A fast one, I guess. But, we won't miss him.
