Doug Weight to Announce Decision Thursday

[Not: Fixed headline (Thursday, not Tuesday). Sorry, all.]

1238 games, 278 goals, 755 assists, 1033 points, 356 PIM. Add to that 97 playoff games with 23 goals, 49 assists, 72 points and one Stanley Cup victory.

Plus playing through countless foot, pelvic, groin, abdominal and shoulder injuries, and mentoring who knows how many young pros and entertaining a bunch of fans and reporters.

From a team release: New York Islanders captain Doug Weight will announce his decision on the future of his NHL playing career Thursday at 11 a.m. EDT. Islanders owner Charles Wang and GM Garth Snow will be in attendance."

The end is often difficult, but you sir, you did it right.

[Next question: Assuming this is what we assume it is, who wears the "C" next?]
