No more freaking out when the opponent has a 2 0n 1 only to realize that Nick was the sole D-man back. I would immediately relax knowing they didn't stand a chance of scoring.

Another thing I'm gonna miss so much was when an opposing player got a 1-on-1 with Lids. The player would be skating in and then look up only to find Nick Lidstrom in his way and the response was always the same, dump the puck in and head off for a line change.

That'sf****** RESPECT!
It's amazing how much clarity comes when you care more about the Red Wings than any individual player.


"They are the best team in the world. They are a team that can just take over when they want to," Chicago's Patrick Kane said (of the Detroit Red Wings).

Very honored and privileged to have seen Nick Lidstrom live in person no less than 50 times. For those of us who have also seen other Detroit legends live, we're truly spoiled hockey fans.

I feel like he and his family probably walked out to the parking lot, got in a spaceship and flew home to whatever hockey god planet he came from.

No, he can't do that. The plan all along has been to marry his sons off to Yzerman's daughters.

You can't say enough about Lidstrom. I've only been this attached to three players: Lids, Yzerman, and Vladdy. *sniff* I'll never let myself love again.
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.

Feels pretty s***ty knowing I'll only ever see #5 on the ice again in replays. On the one hand, I'm full of respect for Nick and all his accomplishments, and we should celebrate him; on the other hand, thisf****** sucks. :(

So, we're dogpiling on the goalie sammy Hudler the defense the refs league bias against us coaching now? Ok.

Truly the end of an era... One of the greatest living legends in hockey history. The very picture and personification of class and skill. I'll sure miss watching you Nick

Nick Lidstrom, a classy player on and off the ice. One of the guys who had a ton of respect from other players. He played the game the right away. I'm really going to miss #5 in a Wings jersey. Like many of you I had the privilege of seeing Nick play live many times.. My biggest memory of him was in 2002 game 3 in Vancouver when he scored from center ice the playoff game I attended in Vancouver.. Nick here's to a great and amazing career :thumbup: :clap:

All the best in the future.

Genius. It's like a hockey version of Game of Thrones. Except with a lot less killing and adultery.

Not yet. I think they are planning to re-air it on FSD after the Tigers' game.
