Signed as a free agent by Grand Rapids (IHL), February 14, 2000. Officially announced his retirement and named Assistant Coach of NY Islanders, August 14, 2001.
It was a different game in the past, that's for sure. It's not exactly what I was expecting but I think the experience paid off for a lot of our guys that realized what it takes in a Game 7. Realistically the effort we put forward, we might not even had to put 60 [minutes], but we just couldn't get a couple bounces to go our way and we just kept pushing.
