Well, it's been a week and Bret Hedican hasn't announced his retirement yet! I'm glad I took that comment last week by the "fanofhockey" with a grain of salt about Hedican's impending retirement due to health concerns. (Once Bitten Twice Shy) Bret pretty much put an end to that rumor all by himself this morning because he was at the pre-season skate at the RecZone and was reportedly "looking good". Luke wrote about it on Lord Stanley's Blog. This is good news! Hopefully, Hedican can stay healthy and make a solid contribution this year. The Hurrcanes definitely need him.
