If Lidstrom retires after the end of the 2010/2011, I wonder what Holland will do. Go after more offensive power or defense? Well, whenever Lidstrom retires he will be missed. To me, he is one of greatest defensemen ever.
UFA's I wouldn't mind us going after.
Zach Parise (sniper we so need)
Shane Doan (hungry, rough vet ala Dallas Drake)
David Jones (how fun would it be to pluck him from Avs)
Paul Gaustad (big, tough faceoff man)
Travis Moen (see above)
Cody McLeod (see David Jones)
Jim Slater (just because he's from Petoskey, MI)
Brandon Prust (tough kid)
Alexander Semin (only, only, only if we can get him for decent money and even then it's prolly a gamble with his work ethic i.e. Franzen light)
Ryan Suter (talented dman we need or will need soon)
Matt Carle (a real good dman)
Crazy *** trade:
Jarome Iginla for Franzen, Kindle and Cleary (yep, I'm dreamin' again)
