Hull Shocks NHL and Retires

Brett Hull, in a shocking move, has decided to retire the NHL right after receiving the number 9 from the organization that used to employ his legendary dad.

Of course, that organization used to be the Jets, but the Coyotes wanted to have their own leagcy with their own Hull. Now, they won't get that chance. Hull told the press that he wanted to play for his buddy Wayne Gretzky as a favor.

I guess he never really said for how long. He saw the writing on the wall this season when the 41 year old found his ice time getting lowered.
"There's an old expression, and I don't know who said it -- "The mind is willing but the body isn't," Hull said.
Hull left the game appreciative of what the league has given him.
"I don't care what anyone says," he said, "it's the best sport there is."
