Recommended Posts

You know Lidstrom has retired when Wikipedia 1 day later has all the information added!


On May 31, 2012, Lidström announced his retirement from the NHL. The night before, he told the Swedish tabloid Expressen “I came to the decision last week and I informed our general manager Ken Holland”.[24] Discussing Lidstrom's retirement, former teammate Steve Yzerman described Lidstrom as "one of the all-time best defensemen to ever play".[25] Paul Coffey said "he was an incredible player"[26] whilst Chris Chelios said "there's been guys who are great players, but no one's better than Nick. As good? Yes. But this is as big as it gets. He's one of the best athletes ever and [...] if you're going to talk about someone who's perfect, Nick's pretty darn close to being perfect.".[24] John Carlson described Lidstrom as "one of the game's all time greats on and off the ice".[24] Ken Holland stated his belief that Lidstrom was "the most valuable player of his era".[27]
