I have Lids over Potvin but I totally respect guys that have it the other way. Potvin is my all-time favorite d-man And I have several layers when it come to the best:

1. Bobby Orr

2a. Eddie Shore
2b. Doug Harvey

3. Raymond Bourque

4a. Nicklas Lidstrom
4b. Denis Potvin

5a. Red Kelly
5b. Larry Robinson

6a. Viacheslav Fetisov
6b. Brad Park

Before I started to post in this forum I had no clue of some of the guys on this list. But considering the time and adjusting for it the early d-men were supermen, and Lids will never catch up to Ray in my book Jekyll (Thornton_19?) has some excellent post on the subject. Just use search.

//Cheers
