In my opinion, Lidstrom is one of the easiest players to build around in the draft. He excels both offensively and defensively, is a great leader, and plays a smart, subtle game. He also brings a strong playoff resume and experience to the Thistles. And, while he certainly doesn't have the physicality of the other options but, will spend very little time in the penalty box, meaning we'll have him on the ice whenever needed.
It's also nice to shake things up a bit sometimes...
Lidstrom is awesome, a flawless defenceman and he can hold his own as the #7 pick. I would take one defenceman that is still out there over him though, a real rugged guy wink wink nudge nudge.
