So does anyone else hope Lidstrom comes back next season?

"During Robert Lang’s time in Detroit, he caused me anguish. Other times he brought me and my family great joy. Robert Lang occasionally coasts, and spends time searching for the best pane of glass to best view the reflection of his flowing mullet. Other times he is a strong-armed force with the puck. I never knew what to expect from Robert Lang. He is The Enigma. " - A2Y

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)
btw who is that on your display?

If you're a Wings fan and you don't want Lidstrom back, it's time to get your head examined. He's easily still one of the top 5-6 D-men in the league (currently playing like #1).
His game doesn't require great athleticism, it's pretty much 98% brains and hockey IQ. Keep him in skates until he slips enough that he's not gonna make our roster.

So, let's say he wins the Norris this year, anyone have a problem offering him another one-year, $7 million contract?
I wouldn't have a personal problem with it, but I don't think it would help the salary cap situation one bit. If they win the cup, I think he would retire. If they don't and he plays at a high level, I wouldn't be surprised if he came back making slightly more than Rafalski like he did this year. Either way, I think next year would be his last before the possible uncertainty of the labor situation.

I think the better question is : Is there really anybody who doesn't want Lidstrom back next season?
Me. I hope he retires last week and NEVER returns.

God no. He is DEAD LAST in face off percent.

At least I think that's how the saying goes.

So if he keeps up a PPG pace like he is, you wouldn't want to see him back for $6 mil?
I hope he returns as well, but not at anything over 4 million.
He's probably not going to be a PPG player, but he's easily the best defenseman we have (it's not even close), so why on Earth wouldn't we want him back at nearly any price up to $7 mil?
