It doesn't change the absurdity of the comment.
That would be like me saying, "Gee, I hope Dats doesn't ask for $3 million per for his next contract." It just as ridiculous as Lidstrom asking to play for what any rational person knows to be peanuts. So the point is....why even say it?
How is it absurd to hope when the outcome is unknown? He could very well ask for less than you think he deserves 'just because'. The only thing bordering absurd is your willingness to squash hope. You hope squasher.
Don't you have enough power on this board? Now you wanna police hope too?
