• In our cover story we explore the question: Is Nicklas Lidstrom the best 40-year-old the NHL has ever seen? The veteran Red Wing defender is still a Norris Trophy favorite despite his age.

• In his Editor’s Notebook, Jason Kay writes how Lidstrom’s health record is uncanny, especially with the number of injuries you see in today’s NHL.

• Inside Hockey takes a look at the Kontinental League’s skills competition, which were played to dimmed lights; how NHLers are affected by trades and even trade rumors; we prepare you for trade deadline with a list of buyers and sellers; and more.

• In Overtime, Ken Campbell writes about how ridiculous goalie fights are, but why they’ll always be around.

• In Proteau Type, Adam Proteau writes about Minnesota’s Martin Havlat, who is having a solid season after disappointing in his first go-around with the Wild.
