It would be so much better if they did when they hosted Pittsburgh. But I digress. I shall be at that game :)

The HHOF needs to wave the waiting period for this guy, too. 7 norris trophies and 4 stanley cups = Very Rare. This guy is arguably the best defenseman of all time.

Agreed. But I would say second best of all time. Definitely the best of his time

I like that it is aginst Avs but hoped it would have been 26 of March. Fans have long memories too.


Sweet. This dude was brought here for one reason, to punch people in the head - every other thing that he can do, other Wings can do better. I like that we have a head-puncher. The league has other, better head-punchers, but this one is ours. Better than nothing. Good work, Kenny!

Such an waste, I mean come on already. This management will do ANYthing to get people to come to a game. Seriously, what did he ever do to deserve this honor. It's not like he is Feds. Does anyone even remember him?






ps. It was only a matter of time really. Can't wait to be there:)

How many bills aren't going to get paid and who do I have to kill to get tickets?  What's the over/under on whether this game is as hot as Yzerman's retirement game?


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.

I approve that it's vs the Avs.  I only wish that there were some players left from the days that they were significant to the Wings.

 

They should sell the ice afterwards.

Well, Patrick Roy will be behind the Avs' bench...

Deserving would be an understatement, easily top 3 defenseman of all time, class act too bad the team didn't finish the job back in 2009. The perfect human deserved another back to back Stanley Cup. 4 Stanley Cups, 7 Norris Trophies, 12x All Star that's amazing. Words alone can't describe how good that guy was. Swedish offensive defenders will be forever guided with the task of becoming the next Lidstrom. This guy will soon join his good friend Yzerman at the rafters. Will be a sad and great feeling for every Wingsfan. One.more year one more year one more year

Goes without saying. I'm actually glad they are doing it against the Avs.

 

And yes "arguably" the greatest d-man of all time.
