I really don't want him to struggle just because of his age.

But then again, he's never struggled, so he can play for as long as he wants.

Mainly because he doesn't want to play if he can't do it at a high level.

So, let's say he wins the Norris this year, anyone have a problem offering him another one-year, $7 million contract?

I was kinda hoping he'd play forever, ever, ever ,ever!!

(Still feel bad for Cloutier, never recovered after giving up that goal)

I dread the day he retires. Last season wasn't his best but he was and is better than 98% of the defensemen in the league and it's debatable about the other 2% .

I wouldn't mind him getting another 7 million, 1 year contract. He's clearly worth it. He's one of those rare players who is contemplating retirement LONG before it's actually necessary. He's the best defenseman on the team and I don't see this changing by season's end. And he's not going to start sucking if he hasn't yet over next summer. So hell yes throw another big money contract at him.

Although, as usual, taking a hometown discount would be much appreciated.

I don't. Although, let's say we win the Cup this year!? I definitely don't see him returning next year no matter the price....

Well, he's already ran Lebda out of town by staying another year, so what the hell.
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

exactly. as long as Lids knows he can play at his standard of greatness, bring him back until he himself calls it quits.

Well, he's playing as the best DMan in the league at this moment, so as long as he plays as a top 5 DMan I don't mind. I know we all rip on Rafalski, but look what happened to our D when he went out, when Lidstrom goes we're gunna be F'd unless we get someone just a tier below lidstrom.

Lidstrom could play with a walker instead of a stick and I'd still like our chances.

This is it. Unlike some pro quarterbacks, he is very aware of his level of ability to help his team. I think if he has another good year, he'll be back. Unless he has some hidden aches and pains he doesn't think he can "fix". We are so lucky to have had him play with Detroit all these years. But you all know that. :)

"He even ate with women who at that time were accorded the same status as the family donkey. Are we willing to break bread with, say, child sex slaves, transgender teens and undocumented workers? Because when Jesus comes back to Earth, that's where he'll be hanging."
You can easily judge the character of a man by how he treats those who can do nothing for him.

Absolutely. Uncle Nick still has it. He probably always will.

However, I think his desire to raise his kids in Sweden will make this his last hurrah, Cup or no Cup. (Hopefully with a Cup)

Only one of the kids wants to live in sweden, the other wants to stay and finish HS here, hence the fact they are split this year.

What kind of color is red? Red is a warning, a declaration, a color that says I'm ready to do what it takes. Red is focused and driven because red doesn't like second place. So what kind of color is red? Their kind.
