There are no words to explain how much I’ll miss you. Thank you for the 20 amazing years making history in Hockey Hockeytown! You will be missed dearly. Fans of Detroit, and people that love, or watch hockey in general have changed their view on the true meaning of what being a great leader is. No athlete is more humble and professional than Lidstrom.
Not only will everybody miss Nick Lidstrom’s personality on and off the ice, but also his excellent talent and the player he kept pushing himself to be. He is no doubt one of the best defensemen’s in NHL History with a career as unbelievable as his accomplishments with Seven Norris trophies, four Stanley Cups, a Conn Smythe Trophy, multiple Olympic and All-Star appearances.
We as Detroit Red Wings fans are so lucky to have a franchise like ours- to have the respect from the other NHL teams with all of our accomplishments -especially over the last 20 years including the time with Lidstrom as our captain.
