    Heh.... he just now said that "why would he not come back?" I, too, think it's time for him to go out on top. He can definitely still play, but c'mon...

    We're supposed to be eating at one of his restaurants on Friday. We might want to delay that a few weeks now. Parade Friday!
    Never let the things you want make you forget about the things you have.

    If he could still play then he would not have been a healthy scratch for the finals
    He is a sore loser and he will never be this close to the top ever again. So buh-bye Chris, go and join your brother Steve!

    Well, the best team won. Too bad for them they couldn't do it in front of their fans in game 5. I didn't have a horse in this race (Caps fan) but I'm sad that hockey is over for the season. Congrats to Detroit and also to the Pens for making a series of it.

    The better team won. Wish it wasn't the Wings, but they definitely deserved it more than the Penguins. They Pens just didn't show up to play for the cup. They didn't deserve it then.

    They were there for game 3 and the end of game 5! But you are right. The Wings had it this year.

    "Hockey Night" song skating on thin ice

    TORONTO (Reuters) - The "Hockey Night in Canada" theme song, a mainstay of Canadian households for 40 years and often thought of as the unofficial second national anthem, may have launched its final hockey game, according to the company that controls use of the song.

    The tune, which has opened the Canadian Broadcasting Corp's Saturday night National Hockey League broadcasts since the late 1960s, will not be renewed as the broadcaster has chosen to move in a new direction, said John Ciccone, president of Copyright Music & Visuals.

    "Effective immediately following the last playoff game of this season the CBC will cease using the Hockey Night in Canada

    theme," he said in a statement on the company's website.

    He said the CBC had advised the firm it is not prepared to enter into a new license agreement. The old agreement, which cost the CBC about C$500 ($490) for each game broadcast, expired following the final game of the Stanley Cup playoffs on

    Wednesday.

    "Hockey Night," which made its television debut in 1952, has consistently been a top-rated program in Canada, where hockey reigns as the most popular sport.

    The theme music was written in 1968 and has continued with minor changes since then. Last year, it became downloadable as a cellphone ringtone.

    Calls to the CBC were not immediately returned. The CBC was

    sued in 2004 by the composer of the tune, saying the public broadcaster used it too much.

    Reaction to the story was quick among hockey fans in both Canada and the northern United States who have grown up with the song.

    By mid-afternoon on Thursday, the Globe and Mail newspaper's online edition had 176 reader comments, most of which were heavily critical of the idea of retiring the tune.

    "This change reminds me of the "new Coke" attempt back in the '80s," read a note from E. Stuhl of New York City.

    "If it ain't broke, don't fix it."

    congrats to the Red Wings, but don't you want to share the cup a little more?

    Unklescott, I hate it. I'm so used to the song and always look forward to hearing it every Saturday night before the game.
