But like you said, some teams out there will throw 5 or 6 mil at him, and the Wings would be crazy to come close to matching that.
See, I think Lidstrom is a 4 million dollar player. And yes...there will be quite a few teams who will throw 5-6 million at him. I hope to god the Wings dont panic and give him that much. But if Schneider is making 3.5, then Lidstrom is easily worth 4.
Sign him for 4 million, hope that Kronwall is the stud we all think he is, then go out and get a McKee type of guy for 1.5 - 2.
I have said all year (and even before this year) that Lidstrom is making too much money. But he wont be at 4 million.
