Fleury eyes NHL return

Yes, the rumours are true.

Theoren Fleury really does want to make a comeback in the National Hockey League.

The Flames legend confirmed to the Herald's George Johnson Friday night that he wants to give it one more shot.

“I honestly don’t give a s–t what people think of me. I don’t. People say I should get a life? Hey, worry about your own lives. This is mine. When you’ve gone through the 12 stages of Alcoholics Anoymous, you realize that you’ve got to be okay with yourself. I am.

“I’ve come to the realization that 50 per cent of the people like me, and 50 per cent don’t. Guess what, I’m hanging out with the 50 per cent who do.

“I’m a busy guy. I’m not doing this because I have nothing else in my life. I do public speaking. I work with native people. With the Dream Centre. I’m doing this partly because I didn’t go out the way I wanted to. And partly because I’ve watched this for five years and believe in my heart that there’s still a place for me.’’
