You do have to at least agree that he is a very close second to Mr Orr.Lidstorm isnt the best scoring Dman in History that goes to Mr Coffey and Mr Orr,but I would say Nick is a better defensive Dman.Nick won the cup the same year he won the gold.Nick should win his 7th Norris this year one behind Mr Orr.By the way i didnt say he was the best I said probably the best next to Mr Orr.I do use respect to the greatest players ever!!!Oh ya I forgot I dont have any Hockey Knowlege!!!!LOL
