This stuff about "lidstrom shutting down Lindros" is a little inaccurate.
Like Murphy said "They never had the puck."
As the Red Wings puck possession game has proven, time and time again, when you have the puck, the other team can't hurt you.
So Lids and Murphy didn't shut down Lindros with defense as much as the Wings just outoffensed Lindros.
It was a great tactical move by a coach more than it was "great defense."
Regardless, I think it's kind of early for Konstantinov to be in the discussion. You take care of the hall of famers first.
