In Topic: Retire Sergei Fedorovís Jersey Immediately

It will only work if he wears a Speedo to the retirement ceremony.  I think without Shawn Burr stories, the retirement ceremony will be lacking  :(

This is right up there with the speculation of what number a new player will take.   The only criteria for retiring a Red Wings number is if Mike Ilitch says so.  It's unfortunate for him to have played in an era with so many other legendary players.  It really doesn't bother me either way.  It's never enjoyable having to watch Sergei speak publicly though.

I guess I'm in the minority, but I never give a single thought to what number a player is going to wear.

The "Lidstrom's" what?  Sorry to interrupt big FA day with a grammar Nazi moment, but you'd think the official twitter account person would at least know how to use an apostrophe.

An offensive defenseman under 30 with a RH shot on a short term deal?  Even if he does end up being subpar on the back end, it's really hard to find fault with this deal.  When you consider what's out there (or what isn't out there) and the prices that those guys are demanding, kind of hard to find any negatives to it.
