Lidstrom resigns with the Lightning?

If Stevie brings Lids down to Tampa Bay to bolster their chances at a cup run next year, would you still like Lidstrom? Or would your feelings change?

Were Bostonians saying the same thing about Bourque?

and by the way,

Do you have all the events of your "records" underneath your tampa bay picture documented? That would be funny to see.

Bourque left Boston for a serious Cup run. The Bruins were not a contender at the time he left. Lidstrom's situation is different. Detroit is a contending team every year.

The situations are worlds apart. Bourque was a non-contender and left with the graces of both management and fans to pursue a cup before his career ended. Lidstrom is on a contender and has multiple cups already.

Of course, I could get off my lame rear and do something.

Here is a guarantee, if Lidstrom signs with Tampa, then Weber will sign with Detroit... this COULD happen, but I think I would win the mega-millions before either happened (which also COULD happen)

I believe that you have a better chance of the United States Government confessing the truth behind 9/11 than any of that happening though...sorry...

edit: The question wouldn't be if you will still like Lidstrom, the question would be would you still like Yzerman for poaching our best defensman of ALL TIME...

Yeah, I think an NHL team has a better chance of succeeding in the southeast than that happening.

It's unthinkable because it's absolutely implausible.

I negged a few people in this thread because they care too much about putting people down rather than having a fun little discussion.

But, I don't know. I'd probably rather he just retire than sign somewhere else. He has little to gain in going to tampa so it would feel like a betrayal.

But if he isn't here (either retirement or this) then next year will be very interesting on the blue line.

When there is a Captain Obvious answer being "no" by pretty much everybody in here, there's nothing really to discuss.

It's just flights of fancy, like "what would you do if you were invisible for one day?". There's s*** for hockey news in the summer so most people (myself included) look to find a hockey fix some how.

Captain Obvious Answers to YOU are not that way to everyone else.

I thought Holmstrom was done 4 years ago and kept telling everyone that his roll on the team was diminishing. It was OBVIOUS to me that he was benefiting from playing on a line with Datsyuk and Zetterberg, but really not bringing much value to the team other than a good power play presence in front of the net. It took people on here 2 years to see this CAPTAIN OBVIOUS point and start saying things like "Holmstrom should be pp/4th line specialist". It's now acceptable to post something like that, but would get you banned if you did it in 2009. So let's just remember that this is a DISCUSSION FORUM. I have no problem with people not wanting to discuss things, but just putting up stupid little retorts to anything that YOU FEEL is an obvious answer really doesn't make this place any better. It's just annoying.

the world would definitely end,if lidstrom signs with lightning.


Yah, I would be crushed. I was kind of hoping to see if people would not like Lidstrom anymore or if they would be happy for him. That whole Bourque thing was super strange, and the Lebron thing is totally strange too. I wonder if Lidstrom left and won a cup with his new club, if Red Wing fans would be happy for him. Or if they would burn his jersey or stuff like that.

I negged ya for negging folks that recognize a troll for what he is. I always thought you were supposed to dog trolls a little then ignore them.

Lidstrom re-signs with Detroit or retires. End of story.

Besides, I wouldn't really consider TB more of a contender than the Wings next season.
