Here's an interesting article,

Pavel Datsyuk - "Pasha" - #13
"Got no fun if you got no puck"
'"I like ladies" - Towards the Lady Byng trophy
"Hannnnnnnnnnk"
"Okay $5 now"

Great article! Nice to see the media fluff his feathers a bit now, to make up for officially declaring him "done" in November of 2009.
Red Kelly #4 and Larry Aurie #6 belong in the rafters!!!

They don't really seem to do anything more than run defensive drills at practice and recommend which pairings should go out there in certain situations. At least, for the Wings they don't. If Nick wants to, I'm sure he can use that machine like brain to be a head coach.

I think Lidstrom would bring more to the table, and I would love to see him work with the Wings after he does go. What you have to remember is exactly why he is going to retire. He wanted to be with his family and with his kids wanting to attend school in Sweden you know once he does go, he'll be moving back to Sweden and actually having a house for his son. Not that staying with relatives is a bad thing or anything.

ESPN isn't actually calling Lids the Perfect Human, it's the nickname that the Wings have for him.

Regardless, a Lidstrom lovefest in the media isn't going to be scoffed at by me. Lidstrom is the best on the ice, even at 40.

I've often wondered what I did to have the great fortune to watch some of the greatest suit up for Detroit teams, nothing probably but what a ride. Thanks to Nick for taking me along on the hockey part.

Yeah... I feel so fortunate to be able to watch every single game Datsyuk and Lidstrom play (other players too but I'm gonna stick with them two)

They're two of the players that will make a play every single game where you have to rewind your DVR and just go, "wait, what the hell did he just do?!" in a good way.

Maybe I exaggerate for Lidstrom, but I know I do that all the time, mainly because I'm a defenseman that's about Lids' size (i.e. not very big), so I try to emulate his game as much as possible.

I don't think the OP wanted to draw our attention to the article itself, but rather the fact that ESPN actually mentioned hockey AND in a good way. :shocking:
Can't wait to read the "Phoenix: I still think it's a hockey market" chapter of Gary Bettman's autobiography. I'm guessing it's going to be chapter 11.
