Konowalchuk retires

Sad news for Colorado fans today, as winger Steve Konowalchuk retired. Doctors discovered some abnormalities during routine medical checks at the start of training camp, and further tests have revealed a genetic defect with an odd name (Long QT Syndrome anyone?). While his grit, toughness and scoring touch will be missed on the ice - Colorado's PK takes a huge hit here - the biggest loss might be in the dressing room.
