Get your ass out of retirement and give us one more half of a season. No "but"s, Nick.

No.  He's retired, it's over.

If only he didn't have a press conference after the retirement, then he'd have the face to pull a Forsberg. He's not pulling a Favre, imo.

 

Wings will bring Hasek out of retirement-- I can almost sense it.

No, he's retired, that's over too.  Steve's not coming back, Kris Draper isn't coming back, Chris Osgood isn't coming back, Kirk Maltby isn't coming back, no one is coming back.

 

It's time to move out of the past and step into the present.

Even if by some miracle he decided he wanted to play again, NHL rules would prohibit him from returning until the beginning of the 2013-2014 season.

 

In other words, no way.

The man gave his heart and soul to the Red Wings organization for two decades. Everything about Nick's character alone makes this suggestion unrealistic and selfish.

 

Enjoy retirement, #5.

Also, sine he announced his retirement publicly he isn't allowed play for one season. Not to mention he sold his house in Detroit and moved his family back to Sweden.

Tried to post this once and it vanished.  Please excuse me if this is a double.

 

I'll agree with the sentiment that it would be nice to have Lidstrom back, but that's as far as I'll go.

 

Enjoy your retirement, Nick.  You deserve it.

 

(Although if you get too bored...)

Money on the board:  Current total: 0

$1 for a goal by any current Wing after whom I have named a hamster.  An additional $5 for a series-clinching goal scored by any current Wing after whom I have named a hamster. $5 if the other team fails to score against a current Wing goalie after whom I have named a hamster.

Hamsters I have had:  (current Wings highlighted)

Henrik Pavel Tomas Nicklas Dominik

Niklas Matthew Daniel Robert

Johan Andreas Valtteri Jonathan

Andrew Patrick Ian Todd

Jordin Damien Gustav James

Can't we just clone him, maybe a younger Nick?

He made kids. No Lidstrom will ever wear a different jersey than Wings/Sweden!

This offseason will determine whether Ken Holland should still be employed with the Wings organization.

 

Please put Smith on the Power Play!
