Rumor Confirmed: Lidstrom is Back


From the Detroit News:

Detriut Red Wings captain Nick Lidstrom will return for the 2010-11 season, much to the great relief of the entire organization.

Wings officials will announce later today Lidstrom has agreed to a one-year deal. The exact amount was unknown, but it is believed to be near $6 million.

Not that I was calling Khan(!) a lying liar…but it’s nice to get some back-up from the news.  $6 million for Lidstrom would be a steal!  So much so, that it actually had me use an exclamation point, which I usually reserve for comments.

Make it happen, Kenny.  This is where the phrase “In Holland We Trust” comes from.
