Glad to hear he is coming back. Now all we need is for someone to PLEASE, convince Babcock to pair him with STUART. With that pair you pick your poison entering the Wing's zone. Lidstrom (the wizard) ya can't make a play against or Stuart(the bull) who will knock you on your ass.

Although your reasoning is solid, I think your pairings are off - Stuart has proven most effective as a number 3-4 d-man and Kronwall is the heir apparent, so I think he should play along with Lids for at least a full year and the same dynamic applies:
Lidstrom-Kronwall
Stuart-Rafalski
Ericsson-UFA/Lilja/Kindl
UFA/Lilja/Kindl

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

Lidstrom-Kronwall would be insane.

Kronners seriously has the potential to be a superb defenseman, and is on his way there. Just look at the numbers- continuous improvement, save last year where he was injury-limited. He's improved markedly since even the '08 season.

GREAT SUCCESS!

If it's for around 6 mil, that's a very nice hometown discount imo! Anyone who believed he would sign for 5 mil or less needs to see a doctor! Because you're crazy! In the head!

In his prime or not, he's still an elite NHL defenseman and ONE of the best, whereas in his prime, he was THE best, bar none

TOP 10 Scorers From Last Year
D Mike Green WSH - 5.25mil
D Duncan Keith CHI - 5.5mil
D Drew Doughty LA - 3.475mil (still on entry level - this is with bonuses)
D Dan Boyle SJ - 6.67mil
D Chris Pronger PHI - 6.25mil
D Tobias Enstrom ATL - 3.75mil
D Sergei Gonchar PIT - 5mil
D Nicklas Lidstrom DET - ?
D Mark Streit NYI - 4.1mil
D Tomas Kaberle TOR - 4.25 mil

To suggest that he deserves a penny less than 5 million with this comparison in mind, is downright insulting.

EDIT - He deserves whatever he wants and although I'd be elated if he took less on his own accord, we should not expect it, nor do we have ANY right to be angry if he does not - he has earned this and DESERVES it.

I hate it when people have valid proof, and reasoning with their posts...No chance in hell for me to argue :lol:

i don't feel 6 million is a hometown discount at all. lidstrom has made more money in his career than 99% of the people on this board will ever see. if he seriously wants the wings to have a chance at a cup this year, he could have signed for less. bringing back lidstrom is obviously the right move, but to be excited over the reported cap number is pretty absurd.

I love Maltby, but to say he wasn't a ****** is a dis-service to his career of douchebaggery.
