Even though I can not read most of it, I find the chatter amongst Finnish websites impressive. The Finns definitely held Numminen in the highest of regards, and well they should have.
I'm glad Roenick did not retire before he joined San Jose. Had he retired at that point I would have remembered him as a washed up, publicity seeking side show. He really impressed me in SJ, especially in 2007-08 when he dumped sweater #97 and returned to #27, and when he scored 14 goals, an amazing 10 of them being game winners.
Just for fun, The Hockey News listed the Top Ten Jeremy Roenick quotes.
