Nick Lidstrom, Detroit Red Wings captain and the best defenseman ever to play the game (no matter what the Bobby Orr partisans tell you), has retired today after 21 years in the NHL. He has a list of accomplishments as long as your arm (four Stanley Cups, seven Norris Trophies, the first European to win the Conn Smythe MVP trophy, the first European Captain to win the Stanley Cup, world champion, Olympic gold medalist). He also is the classiest individual I have ever seen in connection with sports.

He leaves us with the best retirement quote of all time: "Retiring today allows me to walk away from the game with pride, rather than have the game walk away from me." He left on his own terms.

He was The Perfect Human, and he will be missed.

I thought this was too cool not to share:

Hockey Primer. I don't think I have the patience or organization to make something like this. Well, maybe not organization as much as being able to figure out what to put where. I always change my mind like 10 times when organizing lists and what not.

(Ahem, the person who made it is a Caps fan, but I thought the info in it was really good.)

fantasy league

Hi ladies,
I've gotten a few requests to set up our annual redwingwomen fantasy league again. I'd like to pass the torch on to someone else to be our commissioner, because I am not going to have time to play this year. If you're willing to take over, email me at muhshel [at] gmail dot com and I'll fill you in on how it works and transfer ownership of the league.

Thanks!

shel :)

ps. my 5-month-old, aka the reason I'm not playing fantasy hockey this year, is ALMOST big enough to wear the little wings jersey his grandpa bought him without being totally lost in it...I'll post pics when I can :)

EDIT: Thanks to polishblonde who has volunteered to take over! Those of you who played last year should be getting an email inviting you to sign up again. I'll let the new commish take over the marketing from here!
