I sometimes wonder if Lidstrom will miss Michigan too. Both guys moved here there (can't refer to it as here any more...) when they were barely out of their teens, still kids in many ways. Sure, they had the travel and hockey lives going but hadn't yet established their own homes.

Their formative adult years were spent with the Wings, with obviously amazing experiences for their careers. I don't think that just gets turned off. It's interesting that Fedorov, who outright left the organization, kept ties and a home in the area. When Lidstrom's career finished, he sold the family home and outright moved back to Sweden. Do the kids make that switch as easily, having been mostly raised in the US?
