#2019337 Who's going to replace Lidstrom for next season

Posted by Echolalia on 26 July 2010 - 11:41 AM

Its been my dream to see Doughty in a Wings uniform. He's my favorite non-Wing player and I'd be willing to part with Zetterberg if need be to get him here.

Yeah maybe Chara is a good option until Smith and Almqvist etc is totally ready... he is UFA too so just gotta give him the big cash and good chance to win cup etc (right :D)

An offer sheet that big would require like 3st rounders and stuff assuming the kings don't match.. no first rounders for 3 years would sting but it would be worth it in the long run

Replacing lidstrom will be the biggest challenge for Holland in his GM-career and he must score a jack pot or the wings would be in a dangerous situation.

Don't underestimate Lidstrom's impact. There simply isn't a defenseman in the NHL right now who can dominate like Lidstrom did in his prime years.

It's impossible to replace a player who's consistently mentioned as being one of the top 2 or 3 players to play his position in the history of the game (and I can't believe anyone would rank him lower than 2nd, only Bobby Orr consistently dominated his position more thoroughly than Lidstrom).

What I really meant was "replacing him in the best possible way" there are nice dmen who can do a very good job so that the team won't get destroyed after lidstrom retires...

He wants that 5th cup and become the swede with most cups (along with holmstrom) islanders had a couple of swedes during their dynasty so like 4 players with 4 cups from sweden atm

Markov is far too injury prone.I want Ed Jovanovski or Keith Yandle.

I want a top10 defenseman in the league, not over 30years old.

Replace Lidstrom with a 32year old already reeched max potential and have 4..maybe 5 good years left? Injury prone too... err not likely.

You wouldn't notice it as much with a Weber/Doughty, some areas of the game would even be better, like down low around the boards, harder slapshot albeit maybe not as accurate, maybe not as possisionally sound...

Yeah but White doesn't even have 1/5 of lidstrom's abilities, gotta sign a future star D-amn tbh, with many years in the league left, Chara is getting up there 33 years old and have a massive contract already?

It's summer and boredom is killing us all, i was just thinking on who's gonna replace lidstrom when he retires, he will free up alot of space.. i can only think of a few worthy young replacements, they can't just hope ericsson will become a superstar all of a sudden, what's the Free agent class for next summer?

-Weber
-Doughty

Both are RFA though and Nashville even though they're a poor club will probably match anyway, but what if detroit offers him a 10year deal 8million early on and a caphit of 6.8 or something... Doughty will probably get a massive deal too...

or Tiger Williams' 3966 career PIM. I have a tough time seeing anyone doing 200 a year for 20 years unless Vince McMahon takes over for Bettman.


I thought that said Tiger Woods and then saw the number 3966 and then thought, "No way I'm sure Wilt Chamberlain has that number beat."
