Who is your untouchable Red Wing?

Yesterday evening, I was listening to 97.1 The Ticket while driving around. Anyways, they were asking listeners to call in and list their five untouchable Detroit Tigers. When they say untouchable, they mean the five players that will not be traded away because they are so critical to the team's success. While I think that there is more of a debate on this topic for the Tigers, I figured why not ask the same question about our Red Wings team while things are a little slow.

My five untouchables would be Nicklas Lidstrom, Henrik Zetterberg, Pavel Datsyuk, Johan Franzen, and Niklas Kronwall. I was going back and forth between Brian Rafalski and Kronner, but decided to go with Kronwall. He was drafted to be a top defenseman and I believe Kronner will move to the top pairing once Lidstrom or Rafalski retire -- Holland views Kronner as a core member of the roster.

So who do you think are the five untouchable Red Wings? The five players that the Wings will not part with? Chime in under the comment section!
