I'm not saying he was ever bad, but every player has some stage in their career when they're at their best. His had to be either from 2001-2003 or right after the lockout, when had that incredible 2006 season. I guess with Lidstrom, it's harder to pick what that period was, than with other players.

The article on DownGoesBrown said it the best.

April 11, 2010 - Lidstrom ends the 2009-2010 season with 49 points and a +23 rating, finishes fourth in Norris voting, and is named to the NHL's second all-star team. Or, as it will later be unanimously remembered, the worst season of his career.

I believe he was in his prime every season he played.

So, does everyone think they will instantly retire his number like they did with Stevy's and have a big NIck Lidstrom night next season?

I was thinking that this thread should have more pages of replies in it. At the same time, I would think that no matter what.

They better not. That would be an insult to Yzerman. It'sf****** bulls*** that his number wasn't retired on opening night. Lidstrom can wait a year or two, maybe tie it into his HOF induction
It is not a sprint, yet a marathon.

Yzerman didn't have to wait a year, why should Lidstrom?

Same here -- that game as a whole was incredible with Z tying it very late in regulation and Nick capping it off in OT. The thing I remember about Nick's goal was how he pulled it to his backhand instead of shooting it on the forehand with Kiprusoff out of position. He probably could have easily buried it since Kiprusoff was sprawled out on the ice. It's like even Lidstrom's mistakes aren't mistakes.
