The Globe and Mail's Grant Kerr caught up with Jeremy Roenick tonight in Vancouver, where the outspoken veteran was a healthy scratch for the Phoenix Coyotes' game against the Canucks:
"My body's tired. I'm tired of a lot of certain mentalities that go along with this game," he said. "A lot of it I induce myself because of stuff I say, but I'm okay with that. If this happens to be the last year, I'll walk away knowing I had a pretty darn good career and I can enjoy my life after hockey."I know JR's taken a lot of knocks this season for things he's said and done, but it really would be a shame if his career ends just a few goals shy of 500.
