Posted Image Feel the same as poster above. Nick was just unreal. But it was merely just a # as s*** stain was clearly the best player in the NHL last month. Here is to another great month for the Perfect Human! Posted Image

Congrats Nick! But I have a feeling this thread will be derailed quickly with Crosby hate and what not.

doubt it, you can't say Crosby didn't deserve number 1, but you have to admit he should have taken it over Luongo.

Meh, a point-per-game pace by a defensesman is just as impressive as winning 8 of 10 games for a goalie. Either of them could have been 2nd star.

hmm.. did Howard ever get a star, I think he went 9-0 to start the season or something.

Nicklas Lidstrom was named Third Star for the month of December. He also earned a Third Star recently for a weekly award from the league. Many analysts believe is the front-runner for, what would be, his seventh Norris Trophy as the league's best defenseman. Lidstrom is playing outstanding hockey. But, yet, he's not named as one of the All-Star starters as announced today by fan voting? Sounds like a terrible, terrible mistake.

From The Detroit News: http://apps.detnews....2#ixzz1A7EwULl8


While it is a mistake imo, it shouldn't be all that surprising to the Detroit media or to anyone, really. Lidstrom to this day is under-appreciated simply because most fans aren't trained to notice the subtle plays he makes in order to dominate a game. The casual fan gravitates to not only players with outstanding offensive numbers but also plainly apparent flash and style. It's why Lidstrom is under-appreciated by fans (Red Wings fans included) and even in Sweden as images like Forsberg and the Sedin twins gain more popularity.

However, the most important thing to note is that to some fans along with good scouts and coaches, people with trained eyes so to speak, do notice Nick out there.

Agreed, and I think it's pitiful. The man is one of the best to ever lace up the skates and most "fans" out there couldn't pick him out of a lineup if the rest of the line were all Greeks.
Can't wait to read the "Phoenix: I still think it's a hockey market" chapter of Gary Bettman's autobiography. I'm guessing it's going to be chapter 11.

I think it was McCarty who once said something along the lines of, "If you ask any player in the league who the best players are they'll name some popular names and then you ask them, 'What about Nick Lidstrom?' they'll say, 'Oh yeah! Him too.'"

sadly, this is the truth.

Anyways, TSN just said Lidstrom got voted into the game. I kinda wanted him to have the rest but at least maybe just maybe some people will actually notice the real raw talent he possesses, but somehow I doubt it.

Luongo gets the second star for actually playing up to his reputation for a month.
