Just checking in from PA after reading that Mattias Norstrom is opting for retirement. Not surprising, really. He sounded that he was heading in that direction when the team had their finishing day a few weeks ago. And I can't blame him. He's had a great career, he had one of his best postseasons ever, and, most importantly, his family comes first. I wish him well. He was truly one of the best guys I've ever met in this business, never one to duck an interview and the first to take blame if necessary.
But for those of us who wander the locker room, we'll always have Nicklas Grossman, who looks like he could be Norstrom's son!
Best wishes for Norstrom and his family.
