Penalty kill: very small advantage Bourque because he's tougher in front of the net

Overall, a small but clear edge to Bourque (mainly because of even strength offense). But the difference is small enough where picking Lidstrom first isn't that big a deal.
That's basically how it felt watching it them, in my opinion as well. Not sure the stats (well, I mean, roughly I do, but you know what I mean) but that just about sums up my opinion of them as well.
