Dominant in his prime. Sad to see him go.

If by "domination" you mean these IMPRESSIVE stat lines for the last 2 years, then I guess it's easy to dominate in your mind.
Modo:
2008-09 Modo Hockey Ornskoldsvik SEL 3 1 2 3 0
2009-10 Modo Hockey Ornskoldsvik SEL 23 11 19 30 66

That's right, THREE games played in 08-09, and TWENTY THREE games played in 09-10. Not exactly full NHL seasons.

And his last few stints in the NHL - 06-07 lasted a whole SEVENTEEN games with Nashville, where he had 15 points. The last season where you could even use the word "Domination" was 05 - 06 with Philadelphia, where he played 60 games and had 75 points. He hasn't played for the Avs since 07-08!!! (a whole 9 games)

Yeah, dude has been injured. But I hardly consider this domination.


Yes, he's been injured. Which is why he said "when he's on the ice". 30 points in the low scoring, defense first SEL are great numbers. His 14 points in 9 games in 07-08 was the best PPG in the league that year. So yeah, I don't know what you consider domination, but I wouldn't use the words 'washed up'..

In Topic: Zetterberg Slowing Down?

06 November 2010 - 11:12 AM

I thought Zetty was slowing down last year. Playoffs he was better. It seems he's lost that really quick first step. However I don't mind him not getting like 90 points or so. I still think he's a mjor threat on the ice cause he can makes a lot of things happen. I really like him and Dats on the same line...


Agreed. That said, he is still on pace for 97 points at this stage..

In Topic: Lidstrom Signs 1-Year Contract Extension

01 June 2010 - 04:41 PM

just like to share something someone wrote on TSN's website in the Lidstrom headline


"detroit isn't going to win the cup next year, so why pay a has-been 6m when you can start putting in some young guys. retire already, just another favre in the making.... "


Yeah.. Or let's try one that people actually agreed with:

"Wade Redden, Brian Cambell, Bouwmeester, Timonen, Vishnosky and Phaneuf all made more money last year than Lidstrom will make this coming season.

Pretty sure I'd rather have Lidstrom on my squad if I were making a serious run at the cup over most of the players on this list. Lidstrom is a legend and is amongst the hockey elite of all time. All players would look up to him and this is a massive element to any team.

This is a good signing. Lidstrom deserves to get paid. "
