I'm definitely NOT comparing Ryan Murray to Lindstrom, especially not when he hasn't played a game in the league. I'm just saying there is a lot of value in overall play which apparently a lot of GMs covet and many see in Murray.
Uhhhh, if there's a reason why Lidström didn't excel in one aspect of the game more than another, it's because he did
at an elite level. Easily one of the top 3 defensemen to have ever played the game.
