"Generational talent" is one of those phrases that means vastly different things to different people.

Lidstrom was the best defenseman of his generation.

Most people would say Lidstrom had the best career of any player of his generation, regardless of position, despite not necessarily being the best in most (or even any) individual years.

Lidstrom was not, however, consistently the best player in the world or a huge step above his peers on a year-by-year basis.
