Proving that it's not that it wasn't possible, just that there weren't any D-men playing that were capable of doing it in the league any more.
It has nothing to do with being capable most defensemen are in systems that are pretty strict defensively while Ottawa has basically built their team around having Erik Karlssons offense (He has imporved defensively but its nowhere near Lidströms).
