Not if you visit hfboards. People there will grudgingly put Lids as #5, at best, and always behind Bourque. It's kind of comical.
It's a sign of true haters when a guy with Lidstrom's resume gets put there
. Honestly-- if Lidstrom was Canadian and performed for our Olympic team like he did for the Swedes you'd see a lot less of that silliness.
I'm definitely not being a homer when I place Lidstrom beside Orr. You hear the same stuff from professional hockey analysts with only a few exceptions (Melrose and Millbury, but both those guys have hilarious bad resumes as hockey minds).
