I do find the part about the Eastern Conference hilarious.

Also worth noting his agent rather publically stated he thought he would sign another short deal and that would be his advice. I guess we will see.

Be a shame if a part of how he is remembered is as the star HHOF Red Wings player that couldn't keep the streak going and then ran away. Some of you might think that way to harsh but we will see how the narrative forms over time.
The streak will be remembered as ending with Lidstrom's retirement. Everything else will be remembered as a result of that, including player departures.
