Just saw on TSN that Mikka has decided it is too hard for him and his family to make the move away from Calgary.

So he has decided that he's going to finish the season in Calgary and then retire.

I am not suprised by this decision since he said he would not report to his new team if he was traded. Also he looked quite sad in the interview when asked how he felt about Iggy leaving.

It's going to be sad to see a player of this caliber to leave the NHL.

If the guy loves the Flames so much, can't he agree to play a measly dozen games in another city and let the struggling Calgary get some assets in return? No one said he has to move. It's a month... +play-offs, but I mean, if he goes to Toronto that's what, 4 or 5 games?
