Why does everyone forget that Nik Lidstrom was the SOLE reason for the "Detroit" model
Not to sidetrack the thread, but ... Stevie Y?

Lidstrom was one of the main reasons for the "Detroit model" success (as was lucking out on Datsyuk and Zetterberg), but the primary catalyst for Detroit's success was when the team brought in Scotty Bowman and Yzerman realized that winning championships with solid 2-way play was better than scoring 150 points a year.
