Vaclav Prospal is okay with his retirement from hockey.
The soon to be 39-year-old inked a tryout with the Canucks AHL affiliate in Utica last week but decided to retire after one practice. "It was 'What am I doing here? Why am I not with my family? Why am I doing this?'," Prospal said. "So I called my wife. I called my agent. And that was it. I retired. And right after I made the decision, oh, a weight came off me. It felt like I was finally free of all the pressure. I don’t have to prove to anybody that I'm better than the guy sitting next to me. I don't have to fight off that guy fighting for my job, or the other guy trying to take my spot on the power play. I just felt such a relief." Prospal had 255 goals and 765 points in 1,108 NHL games with seven teams. We wish him well in retirement. Jan 30 - 8:27 AM
