And unlike most comparisons to Lidstrom, the physicality and nastiness really means something here because it's in addition to a brilliant positional game.

I guess the ball's back in Lidstrom's court then.

Yeah, any footage I have seen of Harvey, like some of the Hab games from the 50's, he is quite simply one of the most noticeable and impressive players on the ice. That's saying something considering he was sharing ice with Richard and Beliveau.
So when I read articles about how dominant he was from games and in general from back then, I fully understand why.

Honestly, the only D-man I have seen that impressed me more was Robert Gordon.
