That's because Pronger wasn't as consistently good as Lidstrom.

But what if you could take Pronger at his peak vs Lidstrom at his peak for a playoff run?

The equation changes a bit. While I'm sure many would take Lidstrom still, I'd consider Pronger. Guy was almost a modern day version of Robinson, who could beat you with skill, defense or brutality.

It's a little like a Mike Gartner vs Cam Neely argument.
