From The Motley Fool:
The Tuesday announcement of Aubrey McClendon's decision to retire from Chesapeake Energy (NYSE: CHK  ) , the company he co-founded nearly a quarter-century ago, was a surprise that's really not so surprising. In fact, I'm betting that, sans McClendon's large presence, Chesapeake's future could well include changes that clearly will shock us all.
