Lidstrom's shooting percentage is 1.1%, that's just plain sad. Of players that have played any significant number of games he is dead last, excepting May, but if we have to start comparing May and Lidstrom something is really wrong.

I know that he's hurt, but still...

when Lebda and Meech are scoring more than your #1 defenseman we need a change. I don't know what the deal is, but he is playing 25 minutes a game and I just can't believe he only has 1 goal after playing in every single game this year.

It's so crazy to see him struggle like this. I remember a game a while back when he had rang two off the post. Both on the PP I believe. I thought his offense might start coming around at that point, but it hasn't.


Welcome to the playoffs....where the games get better and the officiating gets worse.

teams don't have much to fear in front of the net/down low, so they're closing in on the point and shutting down his shooting lane, giving up the pass... things will change once Zetterberg is back and really ramp up once Franzen's big body is back out front - count on it...

All I have to say about Holland and our off-season:

The only thing I am aware of is that he has never done anything long-term for the tendinitis in his elbow.

Basically. He is pretty much a stay-at-home defenseman now.

Nick has looked different the last two games (in a good way). I don't know if any of you noticed, but he got 1/2 a step back the last two games. And no, it's not just that we were playing Columbus. Nick will finish the season strong. Watch.

Lidstrom looked awful in the 3rd period and in OT last night. When he led the rush up ice then completely missed the net on his shot I thought I was watching Lebda for a second.

The reason our PP stinks right now is because he's not getting pucks through the way he has in the past. His one-timer is useless right now, where it's always been deadly before. Defensively, he still looks pretty good.

He seriously needs to take a vision test.
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

.....Or be honest with the team and to media and announce that he has been battling elbow tendinitis for a few years and still has it and therefore can't perform to the best of his abilities and causes pain when she shoots and also affect his accuracy and power in the slapshot.

Now he just told he has had tendinitis but it's alot better and he will be fine.... He's not being honest to us fans

not hurt. old. his shot isnt that hard anymore. that and the game has changed. point shots are not much of a threat in the new nhl with every team practicing blocking. they to start setting up that tip from about 10-15 feet out off wrist shots, but they wont and we will keep getting shut out.

Whatever is wrong with Nick needs to be fixed. If he's playing hurt, once Kronwall and Ericsson get back, if he needs surgery and will be back for the playoffs, he should get it.

Just cause you look like the gimp don't mean you play like the gimp!

I agree. Plus, his shot has declined quite a bit.

if this is true (which i dont think it is) he should NOT play in the olympics.

You don't go from 3rd in defenseman scoring to 228th after a few months, period.

I was there to see his only goal in the 3rd game against Chicago....it was an attempted pass that hit John Madden's skate and went past Huet. I still can't believe he only has 1 goal on the year. Maybe the tendinitis is really having an effect on him, and who knows, maybe he's still feeling the effect of being speared between the legs. I already know what its like to be merely bumped there in the wrong way, but I could never imagine the pain of actually being speared there. You can't not consider the possibility that he's still experiencing pain from that.
