Gilmour Hangs Up his Skates

When the announcement came that Richter called it a career, it was one down one to go.

Today, 20 year veteran Doug Gilmour announced his retirement from the NHL as a Maple Leaf. He played nobly for the Canadiens, Sabres, "Leaves", Flames, Blackhawks, and Devils. He won the Stanley Cup with the Flames in 1989. He also stands high on the all time scoring list putting in 450 goals and totaling 1,414 points.

I was amazed when Gilmour signed a contract to play one more year in Montreal last year. (check out my archives on what I said then). Gilmour was overdue for retirement, but gave his best shot for one last run.
