They do?
Strangely, I see it exactly the other way around. In most cases, it's Lidstrom who gets beaten down, because he played for Detroit or his competition was weak.

I mean it has been for years something like this... Lidstrom is good because he plays with Yzerman and Fedorov. Fedorov is good because he plays with Lidstrom and Yzerman. Yzerman is good because he plays with Lidstrom and Fedorov. Later the "love triangle" changed to Lidstrom-Datsyuk-Zetterberg. And as far the competition goes then everyone and their dog knows that Lidstrom competed against some plugs.
