God I know I'm so late to the non-party but I haven't been on the computer for the last two days, see my friends Twitter post the link from NHL.com and now don't want to get out of my pyjamas. It's nearly 11am over here but man I'm seriously bummed about hearing this news :( Might just get changed into one of my jerseys. Also kind of makes me regret not taking it into the shop when I was over in the US and getting LIDSTROM 5 on the back... will have to do that when I'm next over. So very very sad. But what a great servant and a great maker-of-memories.

Will always be a favourite of mine even though only a regular season game...

Such a pleasure watching him for so many years. I'll always remember Nick for the way he could completely dictate the pace of a game and those heads up slap shots that always seemed to find their way to the net... My wife doesn't get to see me tear up very often, but she will today.

Like Yzerman...like Lidstrom. We fail him out in the first round.

Holland, you said you would retire when Lidstrom retires. LET'S SEE IT.

We better not do this to Hank. That's all I'm saying.

Imma let you finish, and your cap numbers are all good and all that, but imma let Kenny figure it out. Kenny's cap numbers were the best cap numbers this year.
