The Curious Case of Theoren Fleury

Who'd have thought this was even possible? It's one thing to miss a year due to injury and come back and perform at a high level. It's completely unheard of to come back from a 5+ year absence from the league, at 41 years old, and come back and perform.

Last night he had a goal and an assist, thumping the minor leaguers that make up the Florida Panthers.

Now the question is, is this a feel good story? Or is this just another ill-fated attempt to cling to what was once?

I'm just curious the feelings of the hockey populace, we all know I really wanted him to come back, of course, in a facetious and jocular (demeaning?) manner. Do you want to see Theo suiting up alongside Langkow and Glencross this season?
