Really? That's a huge stretch. People really take Lydman for granted sometimes. I wish this site wasn't notorious with posters who let their expectations of a player factor into their evaluation of their actual on ice ability. Lydman has failed to meet expectations but he's still a much more effective player than Clark, Brookbank, Guenin and all the other scrubs we've had playing in the #6 role this season.

Edit: That post wasn't directed at you in particular, but the mentality of this site where people rank guys like Engelland over Martin, Brookbank over Visnovsky or anybody over Bouwmeester because the former is playing way over their ability level in a lower pairing role and the latter player is having a down year and struggling in a much bigger role or has a contract that pays them like a superstar when they're not quite at that level.
