Looking forward to game one tonight, should be a good game. Other news, saw that Lidstrom is set to announce his retirement, such a great player to this day and will be sad to see him retire, hopefully he sticks around the league or Red Wings in some way, class act, and great player.

Re: The NHL: Where people get concussions
Feels like LA wants it more to me. That doesn't necessarily mean they'll win or anything but it helps. I won't be angry whoever wins either way, it would be nice if Broduer went out a champion but i've been becoming a fan of Jon Quick the last few years too.
Also saw something about Lidstrom deciding to retire last night on the sportscenter ticker. Not a Red Wings fan but kind of a sad day, guy is pretty legendary.
Saw Tim Thomas is thinking about sitting out for one year, interesting news, and with him being 38, begs the question to say that he could be done with the Bruins now, whether they trade him or let his contract go out and not resign him, especially with them being so high on Rask, going to be interesting to see if he actually does do it.
Thomas sitting out for a year is a mistake on his part. He should either play or retire. Who is going to sign up next year after a year of not playing? If anything, he'd get a few invites to camp, doubt somebody would actually sign him at 39/40 after a year of sitting out.
