Why hasn't Lidstrom said yes to the WC yet?

As a Tampa fan (came over due to the question being posted on our board). I think the majority of us - if not all - really dont mind at all if Stevie Y wants to play and do the winter classic deal. Obviously he was the most prolific Red Wing ever, and for him to be able to go rendezvous with his old buddies/franchise/fans and have a nice weekend is no problem at all. I know he is still all business and works around the clock here in Tampa, and I dont think one weekend is going to do any damage to his image here. He has stated over and over again he is ALL about building a long term winner in Tampa and I believe it. His focus is the Bolts, but I think Vinik (owner) and everyone else completely understands his other obligations too.

Again, I'm not going to bear any grudges against Yzerman, Shanny, Hull, Lidstrom, Robitaille...whoever, if they don't skate in the WC Alumni Game. I will say it would be nice if they showed their faces at the event, but if they don't? Meh. No great shakes. It probably won't be seen on TV anyway, and I'm no millionaire, so I can't afford tickets.

If the score of this game isn't at least 12-1 Detroit there is something seriously wrong...looking at the rosters it doesn't even seem fair to put the teams on the ice together. I can only hope for the sake of Mats and Dougie that its not a total route.

i am 100% sure it will be shown live on tv. i mean if last year's alumni game was shown live on versus and cbc, i'm pretty sure this year's game, with all the big names, will be shown live as well

I agree. There will be more talent than the allstar game.

Now that I think about it there will be more talent than the Winter Classic as well.

The alumni team could probably be the current team.
