in all seriousness though, Weber will sign with Nashville cause no team in the cap era not named the Leafs wants to deal away 3 years of 1st rounders. Suter however already stated he will be going on the FA market. Nashville will return to obscurity next year, but hey, they still have Fisher and Underwood...
where have you heard that suter said he will be going on the FA market
Lidstrom is the second best defenseman ever behind Orr. No way you can honestly say Yzerman is a top 5 all time forward.
Also, Lidstrom's longevity puts him above Yzerman. Stevie was a solid player in his late 30's, but injuries eventually took their toll. Lidstrom was an All-Star caliber player all the way to the end. I mean, the guy won all his Norris trophies after age 30!
For that, Holland deserves......
he might be going to sign ryan suter for ya'll guys and you wanna behead him,wait to see what happens in offseason,before taken unnnecessary action
i may not be a red wings fan,but i am getting a sad feeling about the possibility of nick lidstrom retiring tomorrow,not only could the wings be losing their captain and best defenseman,but this leauge could be losing one of the best defenceman to play the game of hockey,nobody will be able to top the style of nick lidstrom
Since when did this thread turn into an episode of The Bachelor?
I think the Wings are up there in the running with about 5 - 8 teams. But they don't poke out as being the favorites. One or both could easily sing in Detroit. But, just as easily, they could go elsewhere. Saying they won't sign here is silly. But saying the Wings are in the best position to sign them is also silly.
nashville and new jersey are the only two teams that are in the best position to sign them,since no other team can talk to them until july 1st and neither player has told their agent that they wanna test the free agent market,there is no reason to think that they won't sign with their current team
You call it a stupid contest and then say letting the fans vote is a great idea...which one is it?
i was quoting the poster that callled it a stuipd contest,but I think it is a great idea to let the fans vote for the player they think should be on the cover,datsyuk is not the only player that deserves to be on the cover
