We could have a great debate over who the best defenceman was while Lidstrom was playing. With guys like Coffey, Bourque, Leetch, Pronger and Neidermayer ( Stevens, MacIinnis, Chelios etc ) it would be a good discussion.
In my opinion the only way to compare players of different era's is by how much they dominated the game when they played.

Notably, Orr played against HOF D men like Park, Potvin, Robinson, Horton and Savard...Yet There was NO DEBATE...Who THE BEST D man was...nor who THE LEAGUE'S BEST PLAYER was...NOR ( for many in the ORR era... ) WHO THE BEST ALL TIME WAS..' ( even the old timers , at that time, were quick to say he was the best they'd ever seen...Still The Greastest Ever IS # 4...say NO MORE!'

P.S.: When was the last time a D-man led the NHL in scoring ?
