I dont think anyone has "overly rosey" feeling for Lidstrom. He isnt a 7.6 million dollar defensman anymore...we know this. But he is still a bonafide #1 NHL defensman. And if the Wings can get him to sign for $4 million a year I think its a frickin bargain. You think we have rosey feelings for him, but I think some people on here are pushing the panic button on Lidstrom WAY, WAY too fast also. So...it goes both ways.

I am sure people wrote Chelios off before his final Norris season. I can see Nick having 1 more good Norris Trophy type of season. He isnt the perennial candidate that he used to be, but he still has tons to give.

Again, I think we have been spoiled so badly by how great he has been over the years. Now that he is making some mistakes people are jumping off a bridge over it. Even at this "declining" stage of his career, he is better than 90% of the rest of the NHL defensemen.
