The reference to people comparing him to Lidstrom was an exageration; read the original post and I'll let you decide what people thought of him at the time.
The original thread might have been for tracking purposes, but if you read the posts by the same people you suggest (through exaggeration) were touting Marik as a big time player, you will see the error of your ways.

It was and remains an issue of Sather's mismanagment of Ranger assets..

Both Dunham and Zidlicky were playing very well at the beginning of the year, and have tailed off since..

But the point remains, three assets were squandered for a goalie who has played well, but could not change the fortunes of a team that needed a change in the core for the future, NOT 1 player to try to sneak them into the 8th seed..

The point was not to tout Zidlicky, it was to use him as Exhibit A of how Sather has misused players like him and bundle a few to send away for single players that cannot make this team any better than its dysfunctional core..
