    That was Ducks GM Matt Gledhill's reaction upon finding out that "retired" blueliner Kenny Jonsson was named the Olympics' Best Defenseman by the IIHF directorate.

    "For those of you that think I might be overreacting, think about how much better our blueline would be with Kenny in our top six," Gledhill remarked at his morning press conference.

    "All of that aside, we're very happy for Kenny and his brother (Jorgen). We're also thrilled that Niklas Kronwall was able to make the trip over to Turin once Ohlund went down for Sweden. That Nik was able to pot a goal against Finns just makes his Olympic experience that much sweeter."

    Welcome to life as an Islanders fan....Jonsson has been the Isles best player the past few years, and is easily the player the team misses the most, more than Aucoin, Hamrlik, Peca etc.

    Kenny has one more year left on this contract with Rögle BK in Sweden. My guess is that Kenny hasnt done his last game in the NHL just yet.

    Why would he come back though? He went over there because that is where he would rather be, I doubt that has changed.
