Hell, Lidstrom didn't face the sort of competition and time that Bouwmeester did. The only folks who come close are McDonagh and Girardi.

The obvious answer is therefore not to treat him as though he's Shea Weber. (Although not even Shea faced that kind of competition...)
Shea Weber is not as good as Shea Weber because the stats never lie.
