    3 years and hes still suffering from it..thats too bad. Who knew that the lockout would be the end of many great players ends. Sad year in the NHL…it is.

    To be fair…the lockout really doesn’t have anything to do with Deadmarsh retiring.

  5. flyersfan21 says:

    it would have been great to see these players play another year.

  6. Deke says:

    I’d have to say the beginning of the end of Deadmarsh’s career was the knockout punch from Jovonoski when he played with Colorado.

    He was never the same again.

    Damn, its never cool when a player has to hang em up for an injury. Who hit him in the first place? I always knew he had head problems, but I never knew who gave him that initial concussion.

    i dont mean this is a funny way, but ‘another one bites the dust’. so many players are hanging it up, the NHL will not only have new rules, but new faces. this is gonna be an interesting season with all these seasoned leaders retiring.

    A shame, he was a fierce competitor and one of my favourite players when he played. Prototypical power forward.

    very sad to see him go. as a kings fan we only got a small glimpse, but became an instant crowd favorite. although colorado got blake in the deal, i don’t think anybody was happy to see adam go. a member of the LAPD line w/ palffy and allison, was joy to watch and brought some life to the kings. his comeback was well do*****ented here in l.a. and he just never came around. true warrior. good luck to him. i’m concerned about jr now, all who come to l.a. seem to get a concussion – allison, deadmarsh, ken belanger, etc. it’s like being the drummer for spinal tap.

    Guys have to respect eachother a little more in this league. According to AP, the hit was in November of 2000 when Deadmarsh was a King.

    I enjoyed him while we had him in LA and loved the way he abused Detroit in the Playoffs. It’s really too bad because he was probably the most popular player (when he was skating) on the ice besides Ian Laperriere (also no longer w/ the kings) so it will be interesting to see who replaces these guys. It seems like the early front runner is J.R. but I think Frolov has the most potential to have a big year and will quickly become the man in LA.

    According to TSN there was also an incident where a king hit his knee into deadmarshes head that caused a concussion as well.

    i’m deeply saddened by his retirement. he play’s hockey the way it should be played. he never takes a shift off and is a guy other teams hate to face. the sad truth is if you ever saw him play you could tell he was a couple of shifts away from an unfortunate injury. his last year in 02-03 he was actually on pace to hit 40 goals and i have no doubt he could have done it. one of the most underrated players ever.
