Reports: Blake to retire
I’m working on some stuff — draft-related and otherwise — that hopefully will generate some good content soon, but for now, there’s this. There are reports, from the Denver Post and the Sharks’ flagship cable TV outlet in San Jose, that Rob Blake is set to retire. That means that sooner, rather than later, the Kings will be confronted with a question: retire Blake’s No. 4, or not?
Blake’s on-ice credentials are very strong — he’s the only Norris Trophy winner in Kings franchise history, for instance — but there is clearly a segment of fans that remains displeased with the circumstances of Blake’s two departures from the Kings. What do you think?
