Your summary skipped over the 92-93 through 94-95 seasons pretty glibly.
While Lidstrom had the 8th best AS vote total in his rookie year, he received exactly one third place AS vote in his next three season combined out of 119 ballots submitted. If the voting proves that he "entered the league as a top 10 defenseman", it also proves that he was not a top-10 defenseman for three straight seasons in his early 20s.
