But my guess is that you know what I mean but it doesnt fit in to your whole "Lidström is overrated"-angle you spew in every possible thread. Lets just leave it before this thread becomes another one.
Not sure how I call the guy I have as the 4th best D-man of all time overrated.
I guess in the context that he is clearly behind Orr, Harvey and Bourque in my book, sure.
Or that I find his offense gets very overrated by many posters, quite often.
Besides that, I don‘t think he is overrated at all.

And what the hell are you talking about, that the Pens didn't build around Lemieux? ********!
