Ed Belfour to Sweden?
He is just another athlete that doesnt know when its to hang up the blades.
I can see him getting into trouble with the law and spedning time in a jail cell which would be about time, maybe then it will sink in to him that he isnt above the law just because he is a pro athlete even if his best days are well behind him.

I think the eagle has the heart of a lion. If he enjoys the game and comraderie like many then he should play for sure. I'll miss him playing in the NHL. He was worth a ticket for sure. His stats prove he's still one of the best. I heard Fleury was having a good time. Good luck Eddie .. will miss you playing here for sure.
