I like that they chose to give away the Sergei Fedorov posters for a game against the Capitals. Fedorov played fewer games with the Capitals than with any other NHL team for whom he was a member, but I think outside of Detroit, Caps fans have the warmest memories of him.
I also appreciate the Wings having the Lidstrom poster night on a game against the Columbus Blue Jackets, since the first time in the franchise's history that the team actually made the playoffs, Lidstrom was a key component in the Jackets' failure to win even a single game.
