, there was that too. I understand that, but Lidstrom was still constant. I mean even teams that spent had to "rush" guys, Colorado with Skoula(sp), New York with Dan Blackburn(I still feel for this guy), etc.

I think we saw it, again not to Hi-jack the thread, because I think that Klefbom as it stands Right Now is a better option at #6 or 7 next over Peckham or Potter, however, we saw it with one year of Chris ****ing Pronger, the effect of a guy at that level on a team, so imagine having a guy slightly better for 20 years WITHOUT losing him to any serious injury? It's something you can't "model" unless you find one.
