If you won't put 13/40 up because they never did anything of significance without Lidstrom, then let's take Yzerman's jersey off the rafters. Dude was a playoff choke artist before Feds and Lidstrom reached their primes. He was also the 3rd wheel for all 3 cups.
If you're only putting up generational talents, then only Lidstrom and Howe belong in there. Yzerman is not one.
You don't have to answer this but I would be interested to know how old you are just so I can legitimize your points. Yzerman played in the Gretzky/Lemieux era, 2 of the top 5 forwards ever. The DUDE as you call him is 7th in all time scoring and managed to carve his own path and then humbly adjusted his game for the benefit of the team late in his career. I'm 37 and if I had to list the generational talents of my youth Yzerman would 100% be on that list.
