Tie Domi retired today with an emotional press conference at the ACC. A player with LIMITED ability yet played 1022 games in the NHL - sheer determination & the want to play. Too bad our Leafs of this year aren't the same & won't be without Tie in the ROOM. He wanted to stay a Leaf & when no contract offered to him he decided it was time.

Good luck Tie

I was about to write about Tie Domi's retirement, but I see twins from bolton beat me to it.

He's our all-time penalty-minutes leader and he ranks third in the NHL with 3, 515 minutes in the box. He came up for a couple of games in 1989-1990 but he returned for good during the 1994-1995 season. During those eleven years he played with a great deal of heart. Remember this fight with a Flyers fan and this fight with Bob Probert while with the Rangers? More importantly from this fan's perspective, who will ever forget this? I certainly never will.

You should take a look at Freddie P and what he has to say...

I agree with Fred in that this farewell and that 1000th game ceremony is way over the top. Domi had his strengths, but he wasn't an elite player or even close to being an all-star.

Still, he had some Motor City Smitty in him. The fans loved him, and that's nothing to dismiss.

I guess the perception of Mr. Domi has changed with his allegations of wining & dining Ms. Stronich during his marriage. A good team player - but his male hormones overruled. Good luck former Mrs. Domi - you deserve everything you ask for.
P.S. Mike - that pic with you & Tie will do no justice in the future.
