07:27 AM ET 07.09 | Few players finish their careers where they started, and so it goes for Milan Hejduk. Hard as it is to picture, it is possible Colorado Avalanche fans will see [Hejduk] playing in another NHL uniform next season. "He wants to keep playing," Hejduk's agent, Jiri Crha said Monday in a phone interview. "If there is any team that really wants to use him for his offensive skills, he still believes he could do it." The Avs, however, don't appear to be interested. ... Crha said he has received calls from other teams recently. But Crha said if Hejduk was to sign with another team, many of the right circumstances would have to collide -- including money. "He's not going to take some (minimum) salary."

"He's not going to take some (minimum) salary."


He's not getting $5M a year either.

I guess he can take his talents back to Europe...

It's a rare day when a player admits he isn't what he used to be. I'm sure he's convinced himself he hasn't lost much over the years.

He let's his smart phone do the talking.

He'd be a nice complementary player on a veteran team.

Perhaps they should adopt the Mayors "self medicating" strategy for stress relief

He sat in his SUV in his driveway while the city went black and flooded last night. I kid you not. Said he needed the air conditioning...

LOL - the air conditioning , and perhaps he could mix in a salad here and there at dinner time.

So what are you saying? You see him in the Red Wings pumping the tires of all the old guys? "Good hustle Alfie . . . . "
