Although I'm young, I had the opportunity to see the Perfect Human play live in LA. It was truly an honor watching you play Lidstrom. You will be greatly missed. LGW!!!!!!!!!!!!! Win this one for Liddy. Is Legwand playing?

Gamecenter isn't showing the ceremony.

Gamecenter did show the ceremony but it's over now so just a blank screen while we wait for the game.

not many people league wide in today's game are as great as Nick, Stevie and Gordie...


But that's the standard that's been set for getting your name in the rafters. It will be interesting to see if that standard is stuck to moving forward...

#2489917 Nicklas Lidstrom:Greatest Red Wing Ever

Posted by Son of a Wing on 05 March 2014 - 04:33 AM

 

 

Gordie Howe is “Mr. Hockey,” Steve Yzerman “The Captain.”

 

Nicklas Lidstrom does not have a definitive nickname.

Half the time, it seems, his last name is mispronounced even by the most ardent Red Wings’ fans as “Lindstrom.”

Or it’s simply, “Nick.”

The latter part is fitting because the brilliance of Nicklas Lidstrom during his two decades along the blue line for the Red Wings was his understated and overwhelmingly effective performance.

To a generation of hockey fans, raised in the 1950s and 1960s, Gordie Howe will always be the greatest Red Wing of all time.

To another generation, those raised beyond the early 1980s, it is overwhelmingly Steve Yzerman.

Yet, with all due respect to Mr. Hockey and The Captain, the greatest Red Wing of all is Lidstrom, whose uniform No.5 will be retired by the organization Thursday night before a game vs. Colorado at Joe Louis Arena.

 

Continues at length and whether you agree or not it's a good read.

Class on display on Vancouver's Team 1040 all day. Every sports update throughout the day they mentioned Nick Lidstrom Night at the Joe tonite, they brought on guys like Ray Ferraro etc to talk about Lidstrom, ( Scotty Bowman had to reschedule for tomorrow) and every radio station give away today was to the 5th caller in honor of Nik.

They are fans, they miss watching him play, and really appreciate what he brought to the game.



Edit: Then they went back to roasting Gillis, Torts, and the Aquilinis!

I'm getting tired of being amped up or trade deadline day and the Wings doing absolutely nothing. Don't let me down again today Kenny..

 

In years past, I understood standing pat even though I as a fan hated it. However today, with our needs and injuries, I'll have my pitchfork ready if nothing happens.

Not that he's my choice, but with our centers banged up, and the fact he's a Michigan guy, Legwand was hauled off the ice in Nashville a few minutes ago. No rumours as to where he's going yet. Stay tuned.
