This is a great line. When he puts it like that, you realise how much we've lost the last few years

My first year, Steve Yzerman retired and Brendan Shanahan decided it was time for him to go as well. So there are two players not back. (Dominik) Hasek, (Chris) Chelios, (Chris) Osgood, (Kris) Draper, (Kirk) Maltby -- Cup winners, all retired. (Brian) Rafalski, (Brad) Stuart, (Jiri) Fischer goes down. And now Nicklas Lidstrom is gone.

"Then, from a management perspective, Scotty Bowman went to Chicago, Steve Yzerman went to Tampa and Pat Verbeek went with him. Paul MacLean went to Ottawa and Todd McLellan went to San Jose. And yet it's all about winning.

Then this

Bobby Orr was my guy. He still is to this day. This year he texts me and says, 'Mike, I want to give Nick Lidstrom a phone call, can you text me his number?

I'm guessing that was when Nick retired. What a conversation that must have been :)
