So you are ok with Harvey being treated in the same manner then? While we all can agree that Harvey played for a stronger team than Lidström.

You realise Harvey won a Norris with those NYR's right?
There were NINE expansion teams added to the league during Lidstrom's career! Almost all of them during his prime.
Yes, he did. I doubt anyone here is saying he cant win norrises without a dynasty supporting him or that he wasnt elite.

Really? Lets count how many top 20 All-time D-men Harvey faced and beat out in their primes compared to how many Lidstrom faced and beat out in their primes.
I count three, so?

You should take a serious look at that list, noting the ages and what part of their careers they were in for the players each beat before answering.
So if some defensemen are old but still great this should be used against Lidström?
