Sorry, I should have explained a bit further. The criteria would be to more or less exclude offensive production, or to have offensive production to be a distant second in consideration for the award.
I agree, Lidstrom and Pronger were (and are) very worthy candidates.
I guess the question I tried to pose was: If offensive production is not a factor at all, who would qualify for the award? Again, Pronger and Lidstrom are completely viable nominees.
