I guess he deserves it, even though he's a wuss that doesn't fight.

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

Curse my short term memory!  You are right!

 

This brings me to a whole new level of happy.


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)

They shouldn't put Lidstrom on the banner, they should put "Legend". 

 

He deserves to be forever honored among the greats, i'll never forget him and it was such a thrill to have such a player spend his entire career on this team and remain a part of it's brilliant history. Thanks for everything Nick and welcome to this new page of history.

Thinking of coming all the way from Canada's east coast for this one. Have tickets gone on sale yet? Does anyone know how hard it would be to get 3 for this game?

I had to do a double take when I saw the date. Thought there was a 2 before that 6. 

 

Well deserved by Lids though.

Nick, thank you! Your number 5 is being retired because you exemplified what it means to be a Detroit Red Wing.

Those last three may not be in circulation, but as long as Mike I owns the team you will not see them in the rafters.

"When I was looking for a captain, I wanted a guy with the Red Wings crest tattooed on his chest," said former Detroit coach Jacques Demers, who named Yzerman captain in 1986. "Steve Yzerman was that guy."

“Told him if he wasn't ultra-competitive he couldn't come here. If he didn't bring it every day he couldn't come here, because he was going to hate it if he didn't, dislike the coach and dislike playing here.
“It's real straightforward. If you don't do it right, you're not happy here." Babcock

there are some tickets avaliable right now on stubhub from season ticket holders but they are going for crazy money. going for around $180 a piece right now.

 

you can try to get tickets when they become avaliable to the general public but i'm sure that they are will all be gone within a few minutes

Why on Earth are they waiting so far into the season to do it? They should do it during October to make up for not doing it last season.

Hey!  With the new realignment, we might beat them in the SCF instead of the WCF!

 

Wouldn't that be even more fun!

The Avs are a nice choice due to the 90's rivalry that Lids was a part of, but I'm surprised it wasn't Tampa Bay so Stevie could be there.

I'm pretty sure that Stevie will be there. Why the Lightning need to be in town for him to attend?

Should have been against the Penguins purely to show them what class looks like.
