Instead of delivering a big body check, Lidström prefers to steal the puck and create a turnover. His reliance on brains rather than brawn might explain his lack of injuries, and also his low penalty minute totals.
You know, that is a comparison I was going to state also, but it just sounds so ridiculous to speak of a prospect in those regards, but yeah. I can definitely see that.

Hamhuis is probably the best one I've heard though. Maybe Michalek too.
