Martin St. Louis RW NYR Aug 02 '78

Martin St. Louis doesn't want to extend his career for the sake of extending it.

St. Louis wants to end his career with a bang rather than fade away. In other words, he wants to retire on top. He certainly was a superstar last season, but if a lockout wipes out the 2012-13 campaign, it might be hard for him to bounce back. "I know I can play a few more years in this league," St. Louis said. "I don't feel I'm at the end of my rope. But obviously I have to make sure that I keep sharpening my skills, stay sharp with my training. I have to get on the ice somehow." St. Louis is considering playing in Europe, but his family and the insurance fees on his NHL contract are considerations.
