DiMaio May Retire

From the SP Times:
Rob DiMaio's magic number is 120.
That is the maximum heart rate the wing said he can attain during exercise before, "I feel like I'm in a wind tunnel."
DiMaio, out the entire season because of a concussion, said for the first time Tuesday that he is "leaning" toward retirement, though he will wait for summer before deciding.
That DiMaio, 39, hinted at retirement is not a shock. He had hernia surgery six weeks ago and, as he said, "I'm running out of time. I'm not getting any younger."
In his 18th season, and fifth in two stints with Tampa Bay, DiMaio was hurt during a preseason game in Montreal when his head hit the side glass after a questionable from-behind check by Guillaume Latendresse.
He has been recuperating at home in Toronto.
"He has a beautiful family," coach John Tortorella said. "I want to see him concentrate on that."
