So NHL.com website has a banner that says "lidstrom is joining the wings next season,...as a scout'

So I get worked up about how dare they mess with my ability to read full sentences.

I want Nick back so bad.

It's too bad the position of #1 defenseman isn't a work-from-home type job. He could live there and play here.


Unfortunately that day is not here just yet....

As much as we need him, it's best that he stays retired. I don't know if I could see him retire twice.

I love that he is staying with us as a scout. Bring some talent that can replace him and others for years to come.

I love the comment that someone made on TSN...Lidstrom will most likely only provide good scouting reports for dmen. All the forwards scouting reports will be "not that great, seems like he'd be easy to shut down". I lol'd.

I don't want "sweeds" either. I just want players who can play regardless of where they are from.

Being an NHL scout entails attending a LOT of games all over Europe (in this case). In other words, almost as much travel and time away from family as during the acitve playing carreer. I wonder if Lidstrom will be wiliing to do that for very long. Unless he just does it in a kind of part-time semi-retired way.

I heard he is mostly going to be a "liaison" for the players to the organization. At least that's what his main job will be.
