There's one person who regularly argues for Lidstrom on the HoH board, but even he didn't vote him first in the Top 60 Defenseman Project. Orr got 17/17 1st place votes.

Doug Harvey is better than Lidstrom and most everyone has him #2 overall. Shore gets **** on because people think he was a cartoon running around taking penalties every shift for some reason, but the dude was the best defensemen of all time until the 50s and the best player in the league at his peak. That said, I think you have to give Lidstrom credit for passing Potvin by now. My top 5 mirrors what the HoH panel came up with:

1. Orr
2. Harvey
3. Bourque
4. Shore
5. Lidstrom

Also since this is being discussed

1. Orr
2. Gretzky
3. Howe
4. Lemieux

I'll keep my head down, but Lidstrom isn't remotely close to the big four imo.
