Yeah and Pronger may have been his most consistent competition in the sense that he competed against him more than most but he wasn't actually consistent at all.
No one was, not Niedermayer, not Chara and not Leetch.

It's not exactly the way I see it but I do consider Lidstrom a bit of a compiler of Norris trophies much in the same way Gartner was a compiler of goals.
I certainly don't hold his 7 in the same regard as Bourque's 5, Harvey's 7 and about even with Chelios' 3.
