Trevor Linden to announce retirement on Wednesday

After playing 18 seasons in the NHL, Vancouver hero Trevor Linden will announce his retirement during a press conference. This will be a day of mourning for Canucks fans (like we needed any more of that). Linden was the heart and soul of the Canucks for a long, long time. Now the torch will be passed.
Contrary to some people's opinions, I think he still had some gas left in the tank. Not a lot mind you, but his presence on the ice and in the locker room was such a huge asset.
This almost happened last year, as Canucks management had to ponder whether or not to sign him for one more year. But thankfully, he did play one more year.
Tomorrow will be a day of reflection for the big guy. It will be a day of so many thoughts and memories. We'll deal with all of that after the big impending announcement.

They haven't replaced the fired assistant coaches yet...I'd LOVE to see Trevor behind the bench, prepping for the day Viggy get the axe.

a sad day for canucks fans. here's hoping the organization does the classy thing, and retires his jersey number

and here's hoping Linden stays with the team in some capacity.
