Since all of us have already read about eleventy billion articles about how awesome Nicklas Lidstrom is in every aspect of life, I figured I would do something a little different – a post with a bunch of videos of Lidstrom’s amazing career.  I know I probably missed your favorite video, so let me know and maybe I’ll do another post.  But for now…let’s do this:
