I don't think Lidstrom is going anywhere. Chelios, Recchi, and Niedermeyer will play till they are 80 as long as a team will keep signing them.

Interesting list, I forget how old some of these guys are. Or maybe I forget how old I am as it seems like yesterday that some of them came into my awareness. But I would bet dollars to donuts that both Lidstrom and Gonchar are around next season. Lidstrom with the same team even.

I think Madden, Tucker, Lehtinen and Maltby will certainly be back. Maybe not with their current squads, but enough gas in the tank to put a couple mil in the bank. Hey that rhymes!
