He should get paid more, it costs a lot to look that good. His eyebrow wax alone is 3 mil. right off the top.

Let those two stay close to where they grew up and to their families, but let it be known to them that they have missed out on a great opportunity to play with Detroit. Their 13 years playing for the Wild will be dull, meaningless almost, to the point that they'd want to be traded after the first 3-4 years of not making the playoffs. I was let down that they wanted to go to Minnesota, but I got over really quick when I realized something, "Two people does not a hockey team make" they may improve the scoring and some of the defense, but without everyone else on the team living up to 'playoff worth standards' I suspect they won't make the playoffs for 2+ years. I may be bitter, as Wisconsin people learn to be, however I am certain that Detroit will be stronger from this, Detroit will raise the Cup once more, and they will be victorious.

Some dude on facebook commented on an NHL update page, not really reliable, but I thought if someone heard something they'd say it.
I heard somewhere he has signed with the Leafs....
Congrats, Lidstrom. You gave everyone your best, and that was beyond anything anyone could ask for. You are a legend and forever shall be. Thank you for being you.
Time to build on the legacy that Lidstrom has left behind and create a team he would be proud of.

I'd like to see Conner "The Conquerer" in place of Emmy, I just think Emmer is too....eh. That's all. Eh. Not good, not bad. Eh. Conner has speed on his side, he could crash the net in a very Helm-tastic way that, I think, would allow for my quality scoring opportunities. But that's just me.

For me it's wishy-washy. On certain days I can't wear ANYTHING Detroit related (hard since most of my shirts have the Winged Wheel), I have to wear my hair up but not in my cursed pink hair-tie, I have to wear my same earrings, and I can't talk about the game the day of. On other days, I'll wear either my Lidstrom or Datsyuk shirt with my Detroit socks, but then I can't talk about the game 2 days before hand. I change where I sit/stand and if all else fails I stand in the kitchen in the fridge looking at the milk. The kitchen trick works.

I don't know what's up with White, he was an awesome player with Lids at the start of the season then suddenly, BAM! Someone tell him he's not a San Jose Choker anymore.
Also, Chara isn't anything but a tree. I want Kindl gone and Commie back.
Frustrated? Frustrated? No, that doesn't cover it. Heartbroken. Depressed. Comatose. Deeply angered. Anything but happy. We came outta the gates smokin' but couldn't connect to get goals. I'm so purely enraged at this series that I want to sock anything that moves right now. Rinne is a good goalie, I'll give him that much, but gosh darn it his rebounds come all the way back to Detroit and they STILL can't capitalize!? We've beaten them time and time and again, what is hindering us so much that we can't win 4 games against them? Is it just Rinne? Do the refs count? The dirty uncalled plays? The lackluster feel of most of the players? What can I blame to take this 1,999 pound weight off my chest? I'll blame Gretzky. That always helps. Blame Gretzky.
Another thing. One, JUST ONE, Nashville fan comes talks to me all smug and junk. I'm goin' all out on their hide. I will verbally abuse them in the ways of Hockey law and way as I was taught and have learned. I will make them wish they'd never heard of the sport Hockey and will continue on until they are a crumpled heap of sobbing. I'm practically dynamite with a laser beam, guaranteed to blow the mind.

Good thing they weren't drinking out of the fountain or something, I bet Bert'd punch them in the gut 'til they spat the water out then say, "You want water. Drink it outta your own fountain."
Bertuzzi, you are my hero.
Boy is Bettman persistant in screwing up everything he touches. The NHL has turned into a big puppet show with him pulling all the strings, it's sickening to keep watching as these acts of injustice are carried out and left unpunished. If they're going to call some, why not call all? Right now, the NBA seems more righteous than the NHL. I may wind up just watching score updates on the computer because I can't stand the Nashville gushing that's being promoted on the NHL/NBC/SUCK Networks, I'm about ready to upchuck.
Also, I'm looking into becoming the NHL's first woman commissioner. I don't think it requires much since Bettman got the job (and still has it). If I don't make it in, I will back ANYONE (OR ANYTHING BREATHING) to violently take over Bettman's current position.
Guess who was also in the barn yesterday, who else but our favorite commissioner, Gary Screw-everything-up-and-over-Bettman. Guess Shea had some kind of (demonic) angel on his side then. So basically, if someone isn't hurt you can't get punished? Then I want 2009 back and the hooking penalty abolished. Zetters should've played possum for a bit to really drive home he was being assaulted, it works for Penguins when they get a 'high-stick' to the elbow. Throw back your head next time Z, make sure they see your agony!
I'm on a rant. I went to NHL's facebook page to see if they said anything about it (they didn't) but Nashville fans were over there bashing away at Detroit fans' "crying" over the loss and "hit" to Zetterberg. It took all my strength not to tear them a new one. I could've went on to call them classless backwoods country-singing yahoos, but I didn't. I could've went on to also degrade them on their hockey knowledge seeing as their "filler team" is about as seasoned as a my socks.
I'm waiting for Weber to get destroyed by Kronwall/Bertuzzi/Zetterberg himself/Franzen/Jimmy "Facewash" Howard/Quincey/Ericsson/etc. and when he gets left in a puddle of his sore limbs, there better be only a petty fine. Gordie Howe's socks! I HATE double-standards!

I have faith in Abeldaker (not a typo, I call him that) he should step up during the playoffs, like the whole team should. Everything's going to be alright.

ESPN really stands for Everything Stupid Pathetic Nonsense. I listen to these guys' opinions like I listen to telemarketers. They couldn't tell a hockey game from a pool party. I'm not concerned with the Wings' performance in the playoffs, the Preds will keep trying to 'goon us out' but will wind up sitting hurt in the pressbox while we wipe the mother-lovin' floor with their ugly back-ups and substitutes. Goons don't win cups, goals, hardwork, determination, positivity, class, and Lidstrom, that wins cups. So once we kick Nashville to Country Music Hall and back they can finally sob into their Red Solo Cup while the Wings win the more important silver one.

Ref #8 has been on my Most Wanted list for a while. I'm pretty sure he hates the Wings. Just a theory though. I just can't believe we couldn't pull this one out, we were even at HOME.

Really, Blues fans? Really? I don't think I've seen so much hatred for anything in my life, besides maybe Mentos Gum, but that's a different story. Can they really not handle that the Wings DO play well, and CAN win? I don't think they get it that just because they're currently the top of the Central doesn't automatically make them the BEST. Kudos to the 'Ninja Datsyuk' comment.

Kindl owes Franzen his two left legs. I'm ready to take Quincey back with open arms if Scrappy keeps this shnitzel up. Woo! Franzen. I want a Mule Trick, but can settle on getting the big, fat, ol' green 'W' in our favor.
I'm loving the Datsyuk/Nike line, that junk is a magical harmonica playing walrus; that great. Need to keep 'em wearing themselves out, running themselves ragged trying to keep hittin' us. We have the skills. We have the speed. We have everything we need, we just need the reward of goals. Let's WIN THIS THING THE RIGHT WAY! THE WINGS' WAY!
Jersey is afraid to go to the finals with any of the central division teams, they said these things out of pure fear. Zidlicky being the most scared as he had no pick. It's comforting to know that the Devils like us enough to think we'll go all the way (at least 7 of them, anyway.)

Yeah, maybe 2-3 games. ColdPepsi came back and seemed alright, he played just fine (besides the whole losing thing) and as said KQ is only a "first time offender" so I think the Shanahammer will come down, but with less force than the Smith Incedent.

I'm not really sure what to say to a celebrity like you, but if I had to say anything, I'd say thank you. Thank you for being on this team and playing your hardest, your best every game. Thank you for being just a normal guy, not hyped up in the media or needing 24 hour press coverage, because it's the guys who don't need that constant limelight that shine the brightest. And man you are one of the brightest. You are a major part of the Red Wings, a major part of their 'family' and watching them play without you leaves an empty feeling in my stomach. I hope you know that your return is greatly anticipated by numerous fans, including myself, no pressure or anything. I wish you the best in your recovery and hope you can return to the line-up soon. Thanks again.

I agree, Nike is practically Datsyuk's clone, they'd be the perfect match on the PP. I like him. Hudler, I say this every time he's on the shootout, don't slap it! Look, he can really get a goal! Hooray for effort! Quincey, did anyone notify him he's on the Wings? He still hits like he's in the trashbin of Colorado. Clean him up or he'll sit most of the playoffs on suspensions. Blues need a quick slap to the face this Wednesday, let's deliver it open-handed.

Franzen has got to stop playing chicken with that truck, he's taking way too many hits, and I think it's effecting his play. I remember when I was happy that Lidstrom was back, then somehow White and Stuart seem to have been exposed to some kind of toxic chemical that makes them play the puck poorly or something, 'cause they're just chaffin' my sides. Berti, I love the toothless giant like I do my left shoe, but like my left shoe if its' sole ain't in it I throw it away. Our shooters are passing, our defence is offending, and our goalies are rotating faster than a revolving door hit by a semi-truck doing 70 on the interstate. Things have got to change, in our PP, our plays, and just all around. I remember when this team was top of the whole league, somehow amongst the injuries and the trade-deadline 'fiasco' we've deteriorated into something less than we know we are. Mama said they're 'll be days like this, she just didn't tell you you'd want to jump through a plate glass window.

Geez, if I won....If I won....I'd donate to my local arenas here in Northwestern Wisconsin, where hockey is highly competitive with the much richer Minnesota arenas. I'd donate to my struggling college (and school system), paying off my tuition and possibly start my own scholarship program or something. I'd get season tickets to the Wings and if possibly go to some major events where my brother could meet the team or something. Of course, buy jerseys 'til my face is purple. I'd also like to take my local outdoor rinks and run them, my city does garbage for the outdoor rinks. And just keep on giving....
