Thank you for missing out on him, Philly. And that day is today. Nicklas Lidstrom has announced his retirement.
He was the best I've ever seen play the position. He is my most favorite player on this recent era of Red Wings, trailing only behind Yzerman. He is also my choice for best defenseman of all time. Sorry Orr fans, you're wrong. At the very least, Lidstrom is equal to Orr, and they are among the greats, like Coffey, Robinson, Harvey, Stevens, Chelios, Housley, MacInnis, Horton, Potvin, Murphy, and Bourque.
Fans of hockey will miss you greatly, Nick. Enjoy retirement.
