Holmstrom? Lidstrom? They are both retired, and Holmstrom isn't the difference between a good team and a great team anyways...
He's managed to keep the Wings solidly in the playoff race despite recently losing on the best defenseman of all time in Lidstrom, Rafalski, and Stuart in recent years. That's not even counting the incredible rash of injuries the Wings have sustained this year. It's a shame Babcock has never won an Adams. Maybe this year, depending on where the Wings finish.
