Lidstrom likely wins the 98 Norris and possibly one or both of 99 and 2000 if there were less "Damn Euros are taking are game" and more "I love hockey, hockey is great!" Not calling anyone or their suit out, but they should know who they are.
Are you suggesting 1998 is early in Lidström's career? He was 28 years old and had played 450 games in the NHL.
