but I am sure that his back and the backs of his legs are happy. Good luck! Not much that needs to be said about Zetterberg.

I expect Z to continue in the Stevie Y/Lids role of a quit, effective leader.  Homer was a truly great one, but his time had come, and hopefully this keeps him from having the kind of injury that another couple hundred whacks from goalies might cause.  This should be the year where the Wings get a lot younger, and some of the kiddies that have been up and down from GR get a chance to prove that they belong with the big team.

Holstrom's been a great player for the Wings for the past 15 seasons.   It'll be tough not seeing him hanging out in front of the net.   As for Zetterberg, it's a great choice.   All in all, very happy to see the NHL back in business.

Homer got the hell beat out of him in front of the net for 15 years.  Great team player who will be missed.

Wow I cant believe its been 15 years since the 97 cup... time flies.
