Meanwhile Bourque was voted top 4 7 of 10 years, including 2 norris trophies (not counting 89-90).

Obviously 80s Bourque>90s Bourque, and probably 00s Lidstrom>90s Bourque, but who in the 90s is actually better than Bourque?
Read my post again. I said there were several defenseman in the mix. Even if Bourque was the top guy of the 90's he wasn't "far and away" the best as was stated and that's what I responded to. This wasn't Orr of the 70's or even Lidstrom and his 6 Norris' in a decade, along with a Conn Smythe and two Cups. The Norris was passed around a lot and many defenseman including Lidstrom had playoffs that stood out during the 90s. Bourque didn't wear the crown throughout the decade.
