Lidstrom confirmed that Barry Trotz said 'please don't retire' while in the handshake line following the NSH series.
Although, I suppose you could take that one of two ways:
- Trotz believes Lids deserves a better sendoff than a 5-game first round loss
- Trotz secretly thinks Lidstrom is declining fast and would be a detriment to the Wings and therefore, an asset to the Preds
