Have more than a dozen years gone so fast?

Have the Boys of Winter really turned into old men?

Odd. It seems like only a few months ago since Marty St. Louis hit his winning goal against Calgary? Has it really been that long since Ruslan Fedotenko scored twice in the Game Seven finale?

The memories are still fresh, aren't they? Of Brad Richards, having the post-season of his life. Of Vinny LeCavalier? Of Dave Andreychuk, the captain of captains?

The Lightning gathered the old guys over the weekend for one more time. And yeah, you probably wanted a few of them to suit up one more time.

As the saying goes, they will walk together forever. When you think about it, 2004 really isn't forever ago.
