Yup. Lids got his bell rung, it looked like from Laperriere catching him in the face with his glove and possibly butt end. I'm pretty sure Lidstrom injured his knee as he fell to the ice.


Lidstrom was only in that position because he lost his balance while going up the boards.

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 :P. 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).

I'm just not sure why people wouldn't finish their checks to the best of their gusto on Nick. I'm not saying it doesn't happen. But why exactly wouldn't they? Didn't opposing players have no lack of shyness for targeting Bobby Orr's knees? What's changed today? Are opposing players more likely to get an unfavorable call from the officials if they check Lidstrom too hard or something like that?

I'm not sure he even knows what his skates look like.

Good one. :)

Gretzky just said, on NHL Live, that Lids is the Jean Béliveau of defensemen.
On the same program, Roenick said Lids is one of the true-blue greatest players to ever play in the NHL. He also said he's the most respected player in the NHL

My friend uses that, but for some reason refuses to come on here (set in his ways I guess). I shall inform him of his blasphemy and see that he corrects it <_<
