The end for Taylor?

When the Lightning open their training camp this week, they will be missing one battle-scarred, battle-proved player — their captain. Known for his checking skills, his leadership, his big heart and his tenacity, Taylor will be resting from a surgical procedure that may have ended his hockey career.

Not that he had much choice in the matter.
Terrific piece. I knew Taylor was having surgery, but not that it was this radical.

It seems very unlikely he'll be returning to Tampa this season.

Two words: Bo Jackson.

This is it for the Toolman. It's too bad.

I hate reading these stories, him and Numminen.

All the "old guard" type players I grew up watching are dropping, one by one.

At least Roenick made it least for now.

But those guys I used to watch when I was a kid...there's almost nobody left. Chelios. Hasek. Sakic. Belfour, nope, gone...who else? Sundin is close to that generation. Gary Roberts, I guess. Maybe a few more.

But it's a kid's game now.
