No disrespect to the great Nicklas Lidstrom but this it not a competition. In fact it's not even fair to Lidstrom. A better comparison for Lidstrom would be Ray Bourque - and I prefer Bourque by a thin hair. IMO Nick Lidstrom is the 5th best all-around defenseman to ever play the game. Some will disagree with my listings because of Denis Potvin but I think Potvin was the 3rd best total package defenseman to ever lace up skates. I would go:

1. Orr
2. Harvey
3. Potvin
4. Bourque
5. Lidstrom
6. Shore
