Very true, although those seasons due still matter in his all time value as a defenseman (unfortunately due to no fault of his own).

And the PP icetime debate is also stretching logic - players who played a similar amount on PP may have got similar amount of points. And why exactly do you think they played similar amount on the PP? Could it be because they had similar skills suited for PP?

You can't say with a straight face that having Lebda replace Lidstrom on Detroit's PP, with same icetime, would lead to no change in the PP's effectiveness.
Yeah, it is a non-starter. I was going to use Brad Marsh as my counter example.
