Honestly, differentiating between which defenseman is better depends entirely on how you rate players. Some people would rather Shea Weber than Lidstrom. They may be looking for the meaner, rough and tumble guy with the big shot. Others might prefer the calm and effective manner that Lidstrom controls the game.

I like special qualities out of my defenseman. For me, I'd rather the guy who can change the game with a big hit on the back end, a big goal on the PP, or the end to end rush that makes something out of nothing. Murray will manage the game, be a safe player to have out there in all situations but I don't think he will excel anywhere and I don't think he's the guy who can change a game.
