Swede as I am, I must ask this questione, who is your TWO favorite swedes playing for the wings? (two because I guess, and hope, that Lidström will win this quite easily.

We have a few to pick from:
Lilja
Franzen
Zetterberg
Lidström
Holmström
Ericsson
Kronwall
(Ritola)

My #1 pick is always Lidström, at second place I up till recently would have picked Zetterberg, but lately(?), I'll have to go with Johan Franzen

Holmstrom is my favorite current Red Wing, so that takes care of #1. Second favorite Swede is a tie between Zetterberg and Franzen.
Lets Go:
Red Wings
Tigers
Roughriders
Lions
Spartans
Pistons

He's been... nothing like what made him my favorite but I think you have to stick with your favorite through the good and bad.

Sandström for the win! What a player - just such a shame he was robbed of the Conn Smythe...

I would probably say Holmström.

This is like saying, "Your choices are sex, chocolate, and money OR chocolate, money, and sex- you choose the amounts of each".

You can't lose.

Kronwall is #1.

Sammy was #2, but now I can't choose a #2. It's just too close to call.

Money on the board:  Current total: 0

$1 for a goal by any current Wing after whom I have named a hamster.  An additional $5 for a series-clinching goal scored by any current Wing after whom I have named a hamster. $5 if the other team fails to score against a current Wing goalie after whom I have named a hamster.

Hamsters I have had:  (current Wings highlighted)

Henrik Pavel Tomas Nicklas Dominik

Niklas Matthew Daniel Robert

Johan Andreas Valtteri Jonathan

Andrew Patrick Ian Todd

Jordin Damien Gustav James

Why is Zetterberg leaning in that picture? I mean, is he that injured that he can't stand up straight during a photoshoot?

I think it's a cool shot of hank. Don't want them all doing the same thing. Great pic!
