Tomas Holmstrom’s Retirement And Legacy - Octopus Thrower

The Red Wings and the fans are going to miss Tomas Holmstrom. Not only because he has been with the Red Wings for 15 years and won 4 Stanley Cups, but because he always gave up his body for the team. Whether it was in his first years where he was hitting everything that moved or later in his career where he went straight to his office on the power play. He never gave up and did everything he could to help the team. We will miss your big butt out there Homer.
