Report: Flames’ MacDermid to retire at 24

Feb 26, 2014, 10:54 AM EDT

Interesting news out of Calgary — according to Sportsnet’s Fan 960, forward Lane MacDermid has opted to retire.

MacDermid, 24, was acquired by Calgary from Dallas in November and appeared in one game for the Flames, spending most of his time with AHL Abbotsford.

Prior to his time with the Flames, MacDermid played with Boston and Dallas — he was part of the deal that sent Jaromir Jagr to the Bruins at the ’13 NHL Trade deadline.

    Being traded to the Flames from the Bruins will do that to you.

      He wasn’t.

        Yeah, I forgot he was sent to Dallas first. Either way, he became a Flame…

        Well in all fairness, he probably would have been a part of the Iginla trade along with Matt Bartkowski and others had it gone through.

      Bruins never should have traded him in the first place, but then again what do fans know. lol

      Is this parody? We have: misspellings; bad grammar/word use; lack of punctuation; lack of capitalization; name-calling; and anti-gay sentiment.

      Did I miss anything?

        His stupidity doesn’t make you any less dumb.

        I see it’s jump-on-commenter-for-minor-oversight day here at PHT.

        And Vanek…I’ve seen some of your posts. Both your pot and kettle need some scouring.

    As if the Crosby’s girlfriend comment makes you any less of a dumbass? Both are dumbass comments.

    These posts have gone off topic a little bit. I’m gonna choose not to act like a teenage girl and wish him the best of luck.

    You see guys chase the paycheck for years when their isnt into it. This kid (perhaps I shouldn’t use that term since we are the same age) has chosen to jump into the real world. Good luck in all of your future endeavors, you have achieved a dream so few of us will recognize.

    Sucks too see. I enjoyed watching MacDermid play in boston even though he did get traded basically for Jagr but he was a good young grinder

    Makes me wonder if he’s retiring in order to get out of a bad situation, much like Tim Thomas did. Perhaps he’ll be back in a year.

    Hold on with your nasty comments while I get the popcorn (;
