I hear that a lot, but I never thought it was close. Steven had a better peak and a longer career as a top defenseman.

I think the reason people think Niedermayer > Stevens is because Niedermayer could have played longer since his last season at 36 was still offensively great. Stevens by the end of the 94 lockout was strictly a great defensive defenseman till the end of his career.
