Every play is Perfect.

Nicholas J. Cotsonika: A toast to Nicklas Lidstrom's classy consistency over flash | Detroit Free Press | freep.com
"Too often, Lidstrom was taken for granted. His excellence was like a plane landing safely. Amazing when you stop to think about it, but routine day to day. Not news." I loved this line from the article.

Jason La Canfora: Nicklas Lidstrom's contract talks terrified teammates | Detroit Free Press | freep.com
Crazy. I had no idea Jason La Canfora covered the Wings. He was on NFL Network all the time. Nice write up here too.

Scotty Bowman doesn’t much care for how the game is played now | ProHockeyTalk

Thomas: Sitting out for 'friends, family, faith,' plus a free endorsement plug | June
It's so crazy how far Tim Thomas has fallen in less than a year. He was the king of Boston sports and now he's gone off the deep end it seems. Maybe there is more to the story that we don't know, but on the surface he looks pretty crazy. Also, anyone think it's interesting that friends comes before family in the three F's?

Let's Go Red Wings.
