Aki Berg retires

(1/2) > >>

riff raff:
I see that Aki Berg has retired from professional hockey.

Let's all pause and silently think of our favourite sarcastic response.

WhatIfGodWasALeaf:
Aki play haki?

Fletch:
Didn't h eretire just before coming to Toronto?

moon111:
During their time with Toronto; Phaneuf, Schenn, Komisarek, Aulie, Holzer, and Lashoff all have a worst +/- then Aki Berg did.  Wasn't bad one-on-one, but had no puck movement skills.  Always wondered why forwards couldn't drop back to at least be in a better position to take a small pass to get the puck out of their own zone.  Maybe they confused him for Tomas Kaberle.

For the most part, Berg also played in front of a much better goalie than those guys have had in their time with the Leafs (the one exception being post-lockout Eddie). But yeah, I don't think he was as bad as many made him out to be. Decent 5/6 guy.
