Just a thought from a Sens fan, but it seems that having Mathieu Schneider in town has had a significant effect. Here's a guy playing just as many minutes, whose game is definitely more one-dimensionally offensive in nature. On the surface it seems that Lidstrom has perhaps focussed on compensating for the loss of the more defensive-oriented Hatcher and Chelios (a credit to his ability to do so), while leaving Schneider to be the more aggressive in terms of offense.

But it's also true that Lidstrom seems to be more of a 2nd half player... we'll have to see what happens. That being said, I've thoroughly enjoyed having Mathieu Schneider on my pool team all year, and hope that a resurgence by Lidstrom doesn't cost Schneider offensively.
