An early trip to the front office

Classic good news/bad news out Detroit this morning, where Greg Johnson has retired from the NHL.

Bad news, in that the Red Wings were hoping he would add depth as a 3rd or 4th line center, and that his career is ending while he still had a few years of productive play yet.

Good news, in that his heart ailment was diagnosed in training camp, before he had a collapse like Jiri Fischer did last season. Also good news in that the Wings are putting him to work in their player development department, rather than just cutting him loose.

Good luck, Greg.
