Well today is a sad day for Vancouver Canuck fans like me. Our beloved Trevor Linden officially retired. I'm so glad that even though I'm in Denver today, at least I can see the press conference on the net, thank goodness for the Internet! I would hate to have missed this by being away.
I knew this was coming, I'm so glad I was at the last Canucks game on April 5. It was great the way everyone saluted Trevor. Heck, I had tears in my eyes by the end of the game. It was a very emotional evening. Today, even knowing that he was retiring, it's still sad. He was a great asset to the Vancouver Canucks and our city. It will be strange next season not to see number 16 out there playing. At least he always gave our team a great effort. There's definately something special about our number 16.
So long Trevor, it's been a great 20 years of hockey, thanks for that! You'll always be #1 in our hearts. When the Canucks finally win the Stanley Cup, I'll still be a little sad for you that you didn't get to raise the Cup as a Canuck, but, I'll bet you'll be cheering in the stands!
Thanks again for the memories, Trevor!
