Yup would love to have three Badgers on that blue line come July 1st. Schultz, Suter, and Smith.

And with this announcement, the last two members of the 1997-1998 teams (Lidstrom and Holmstrom) are retired from the team; Mike Knuble is the only remaining active player. Holmstrom will doubtless announce his own official retirement soon.

Pavel Datsyuk is the only active player still in the NHL from the 2002 cup.

I haven't really payed too much attention to Schultz (mostly because everyone seems to think he's already signed, sealed and delivered to the Leafs), but is this kid really that good to come right out of college and crack an NHL roster overnight?

Seems hard to believe the Wings would even be interested, especially knowing how they operate with their whole "overripe" scheme.

This is very sad news indeed. We knew the day would come but it's going to be hard to swallow when it actually happens tomorrow. First-ballot HOF'er, no doubt.

Blues fan here, and as a rival fan, I sure hope he is calling it a career. As a hockey fan, I am going to miss him as a player. He is a class act on and off the ice. He is truly a generational player, and we might not see another like him in my life time. Good luck in your retirement #5, you are the best of the best.

whoever lives in vegas, start thinking about throwing pounds of money on the Over line when detroit plays....defense is gonna be ****ing horrible....you know, i love holland and his work and sometimes he is very undervalued....but this is the off-season which shows what the front office wants for our future....if it gets leaked out at all that holland tried to get the big names for bid money but illitch didn't want to shell it out cuz of tigers im gonna go ****ing insane...

on top of it all, i found out that i had a little bit of british in me..........WHAT THE **** KIND OF A DAY IS THIS

The injury may have been worse than was let on. Tough to see him go and a huge loss. For those that wanted a major shakeup, though, something like this could be a silver lining as this officially becomes Hank and Pavel's team both on the ice and in the locker room as the top leaders on the team. We will see how they and guys like Kronwall take the torch and if they are capable of stepping up to fill that void. Losing three significant members of the 2012 team in Lidstrom, Stuart and Hudler and bringing in replacements from FA and trades also will completely alter the look and makeup of the roster for either better or worse.

According to some people he already put his house on sale and haven't reported his kids for school for next year - He's going back to sweden

It doesn't appear likely he will stay with the wings/hockey in any capacity

He could be European scout, some dynamic duo with Håkan Andersson...

and he will be the Captain of the Alumni Team at the Winter classic.

Eh, he could still be a scout, at the very least.

I imagine they could find a place for him working next to Hakan and co., if he was interested.
