Fellow former Wings captain Nicklas Lidstrom likewise has a favorite Lindsday memory that involves a picture. It reveals the humor, humility and heart that defined Lindsay.
“I once asked him to sign a photo that I had of him skating with his stick as a rifle” Lidstrom said. “I told him that I had it at my house but I would bring it down to the Joe so that he could sign it next time he came around. He said that he would come out to my house that afternoon and get it signed instead. I insisted that he wouldn't have to make the trip but he just said, 'It would be my pleasure!'
“When he signed the picture, he told me the story about him receiving death threats in Toronto during the playoffs and after they won the game at Maple Leaf Garden he came up with the idea of turning his stick over and aiming it at the fans! He was a true gentleman and really stood up for his beliefs.”
