I put the ‘retirement’ like that because, we don’t know what he is going to do. Stefan is simply a child. According to Stefan’s agent there is a lot of speculation out there and, well there is. There is WAY too much going on with assumption. This is Stefan Legein’s life. This still could be his career. Why are people crucifying him? He doesn’t deserve it. He deserves to be given his time, he should be allowed to think, he shouldn’t have to deal with blogs saying untrue things about him, and reporters calling him every five seconds.
Stefan, I hope nothing but the best for you. I hope you find what you are looking for, and most of all I hope that YOU are happy, because that is what matters. Your happiness. That’s it.
Also, I have to say a big thank you to Adam Proteau of The Hockey News, Stu Heckel of The New York Times, Puck Daddy, Aaron Portzline, and Kukla (and whoever else gave me credit for this story.) As a journalism student, it was quite the honor to even be mentioned by these people.
