Reminder- Robitaille Retirement At 3:00pm

The LA Kings will be streaming Luc's retirement conference at 3:00pm EST today. A nice tribute to Robitaille from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail,
On draft day in June, 1984, the Los Angeles Kings were so sure of Luc Robitaille's Hall Of Fame potential that they used their ninth pick, 171st overall, to select him from the Hull Olympiques of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League. Five rounds earlier, with the 69th pick in the draft, the Kings chose what they considered a surer bet - a Minnesota high school prospect named Tom Glavine, who never played a game in the National Hockey League, but went on to have a pretty good major-league baseball career, mostly with the Atlanta Braves.
