Meaningless association between Lids and Homer; Homer sits on top of a goalie every night and takes endless abuse for it, while Lids doesn't get much physical contact that he doesn't initiate. That's the main cause of decline in the NHL, and with Lidstrom's style of play, he'll be good for a bit yet.

Maybe not for top-pairing minutes, but he should be good for 20 a night.


That isn't your argument at all. You've said that:

1. Lidstrom is the best defenseman in the NHL. You referenced past performance.

2. Any team would sign Lidstrom to a five year deal at his current age.

Now you're backing off and saying that hes declining with age. Which if is the case, its very easy to suggest that hes not the best defenseman in the league. Unless you're one of the blatant homers who honestly believed that Lidstrom was leaps and bounds ahead of Neidermeyer and Pronger and is just staring to come back down to Earth. If that is the case, than this argument is over.

No, I referenced his numbers from the last three years (you know, when he's been ~5 years older than Chara is now?) AND his won hardware to prove that you're an idiot.


Reference Holmstrom's numbers from three years ago and justify his presence on the top line. Its a meaningless argument. Teams don't sign players based on past performance.

I watch every game I can; I have Center Ice.

I don't agree with you and the evidence isn't there to back up your claims.


A simple comparison of Atlanta's top six vs Washington's top six is all that is necessary. Of course those facts are completely ignored since you feel the need to troll your boat for the sake of disagreeing.

Too bad they're far from ready.


Kindl and Kolosov or at the very worst Meech isn't ready to play bottom pairing minutes?

Kovalchuk-Datsyuk-Leino
Cleary-Zetterberg-Franzen
X-Filppula-Abdelkader
X-Draper-Helm

Ericsson-Rafalski
Stuart-Lilja/Kolosov
Kindl-Meech

Osgood
Better backup

Oh lords how ever will we compete?

Guess we'll never know for sure if you're right, because he's stuck in Atlanta, so he's not likely to see much talent.

Until then, you're wrong.


Don't ever use "We'll" like "We're" on the same playing field. Take a break from watching on Wings broadcasts and take a look at other teams around the NHL. Kovalchuk scores 50+ playing on the worst team in the conference, while Ovechkin scores 60 playing on the best.

Its not really a debate.
