Like I said, we'll know more in a couple years.
That's not a really fair way of looking at this , because while I think Lidstrom was the most important piece of the 90/00s Detroit teams , they were some pretty spectacular forwards playing on those teams as well , like xxx and xxx just to name a few.When they were gone other star forwards stepped up with xxx and xxx helping the wings in their prime.The problem with your take on the problem (which is to wait a couple of years and see what happens) is that both xxx and xxx are getting older and past their prime and there's no sign of anybody stepping up and replacing them.
