Zero chance at Lidstrom he hasnt touched hockey in 6 years. He wont be in shape. Its not the same once your out of it.

I agree with him being named as I bet Lidstrom could still play tomorrow at least at a he is a good third pairing defender level.

Brind'Amour could at least be a grinder. Probably still in better shape than any NHLer and could win every faceoff.

Richards was bad his last 3 seasons, MSL wasn't good his last season.

There is a reason he was nicknamed the perfect human. He looks to still be in incredible shape when he shows up to events. He is still working out two or three hours a day it sounds like in his interviews.

The thing with Lidstrom is he was quite clear he didn't want to play unless he still felt he was the best. He wasn't hanging on to be above average. But this is a hypothetical of could he still play. My guess is he probably could play a very small role still and that explains how incredible I really think he was. He was still top pairing good albeit beginning to slow down his last year in the league. He was smart enough I think if he wanted to hang on ala Chelios he could make it work as a PK and PP specialist while playing third pairing d-man.

Rod the Bod cause he'd probably still outwork and be stronger/fitter than 90% of the league

Yes I understand he's not retired, but it seems like it. It's a joke. Relax in advance.

Wonder how much Penner will weigh in 2022 when the Kings have a 10 year Cup reunion.

I've been a hardcore hockey fan for almost 20 years and I've literally never heard him get called by that nickname.
