I don't know many who say Bouwmeester IS Lidstrom. What I'm hearing is that if you're going to find a comparable for playing style, Lidstrom and Bouwmeester play similar games.

It's the same as looking up a scouting report and seeing "Player comparable". They obviously don't mean that this guy fresh out of the draft, even if he is the #1, is definately going to have the same career as the comparable, but that's it's a comparable mentality.
