When the off-season continues to pass and players still have “free agent” associated with their names, so many questions can be asked.
Hockey is a physically strenuous game, and because of that it takes a special kind of player to play to the age of 40. For many players who are over the age of 35, or are seen as past their prime, the question of retirement tends to surround discussions of their names.
Here is my list of eight players who are still in the pool of free agency and would be better off hanging up the skates now, instead of hoping for a new team for next year. Just for clarification, I chose to organize this list by age, youngest to oldest, and for players who match in age, simply alphabetically.
