Time For Clarke MacArthur To Retire

from Don Brennan of the Ottawa Sun,

Nobody wants to see MacArthur risk hurting his head again. If, after taking almost a full year off to recover from the last one, he couldn’t make it through a training camp scrimmage without having his eggs scrambled (a term he would use), MacArthur needs to make the most difficult decision of his life. He has to hang up his blades for good.

Forgive the pun, but it’s a no-brainer. He’s had nine good seasons in the NHL. With his hockey knowledge and winning personality, he could easily get another, safer job in the game.

I don’t say suggest this lightly. I know how competitive he is and how much he’ll miss the game. But I care more about the man and his health than the Senators won-loss record.


MacArthur suffered his latest concucssion in a squad scrimmage, watch the hit below if you missed it earler.
