Afternoon Line

“The year went really well. It’s not the problems that you have with the players. It’s nothing. It’s part of the game. It’s not the team. It’s not the lack of result that we had in the playoffs. It’s not that at all. I just find that it’s the end of the line. I’ll be 65. It’s just time.”

-Jacques Lemaire on why he announced his retirement.  Much more from Phil Coffey of NHL.com.

I’ll translate:

“Screw this.  I got Kovalchuk at the deadline, I have Marty Brodeur in net, and we still lay a big steaming pile on the ice in Round 1.  I don’t needs this.  Not in NJ.  I had this crap in Minneapolis already.  There they’d say a few mean things about here.  Here they might kill me, just to watch me die.  Marty’s washed up… Ilya wants to go somewhere else now… Paul Martin is my best d-man… Screw this.  I’m going fishing…”
