He will be playing in the swedish second division. He might as well play in the AHL then.
Eddie its over, hang them up before you disgrace yourself by being a back up in a second division league.

Classic story of a man who hung on too long. Second most famous athlete ever, behind Ali, who also was criticized for hanging on. People and history forget pretty quickly. You like to see your heroes look like heroes all the time. truth is they are human and had lots of bad momments too. You quickly forget those and as time goes on the fade away even more.
God its been 60 years and people are already starting to point out some of the good things hitler did. Thats pretty scary how quickly people can start to forget the negatives.
