Play If You Can

from the CP,

Steve Yzerman and Joe Nieuwendyk were forced into retirement by injuries and never really had to wrestle with the decision about when to call it a career.

So when they see players like Mats Sundin or Joe Sakic struggling to make up their minds, they have one simple piece of advice.

“If there’s any doubt and guys aren’t sure, I think they should be playing,” Yzerman told The Canadian Press on Friday. “You can be retired for the rest of your life. You’ll know when you’re done.

“If you’re not 100 per cent certain that you don’t want to play anymore, then the decision is that you should be playing.”

Added Nieuwendyk: “People always told me: ‘Play as long as you can.’ I think these guys you’re talking about still have some good years left in them.”
