Put The Lidstrom Retirement Talk On Hold

from Steve MacFarlane of the Toronto Sun,

Think it’s fair to say that Nicklas Lidstrom retirement speculation should stop.

So he’s 41. He sure doesn’t look it.

“Looks like he took a sponge bath in the fountain of youth,” said Paul Bissonnette on the TSN panel Friday night.

The Detroit defenceman contributed a pair of first-period goals to the Red Wings’ 4-3 victory in a do-or-die Game 4 to stave off elimination at the hands of the San Jose Sharks.

“Lots of times when you get tot he end of your career you can smell it, because you can’t do the same things you used to do,” said colour commentator Ray Ferraro.

Lidstrom doesn’t have that problem.

continued plus many observations from both of the games tonight…

“Coincidentally, if Wings G Jimmy Howard wasn’t at his Howard worst, this series would be a lot closer ...”  What’s up with this comment? Is this actually the opinion of other MSM or is this guy just special?

“Observations.” Not take-to-the-bank statements. As I recall, Mr. MacFarlane’s the sort of, “This is what I saw on TV” guy for the Toronto Sun. Like Don Brennan in Ottawa or Ed Willes in Vancouver, full of smarmy remarks.
