Report- Rob Blake Thinking Retirement

from David Pollak of the Mercury News,

Sharks captain Rob Blake is leaning toward retirement at age 40, according to a source familiar with the situation, but he is holding off on any announcement just yet.

“You need time to unwind after the season and different things,” Blake said Wednesday as players cleaned out their lockers for the season. “My kids are in school until June, and I want to meet with Doug (Wilson) and meet with Todd (McLellan) and talk things over and go from there.”

The 6-foot-4, 220-pound Blake earned $4 million this season, his second with the Sharks, and averaged 23:20 ice time in the postseason, second highest of any skater on the team.
