In Topic: Mike Van Ryn retires

Wow, that was 10 years ago? How time flies...


At the time, I remember him saying something along the lines of wanting to learn from the "greats" like Al MacInnis and Chris Pronger...

I guess Stevens, Niedermayer, and Robinson weren't good enough for him? I wonder if he'd have been on the '03 cup team had he stayed. He unfortunately set a precedent for players like Blake Wheeler to slip away from the teams that drafted them. It's still a shame that injuries cut his career so short though.
