Yet Jagr was a Hart finalist 6 times to Fedorov's and Forsberg's 1 time each.

His 5 Art Ross trophies were more than Forsberg's and Fedorov's top 5 finishes in scoring.

Outside of Lemieux and Gretzky, the 90's-2005 era had 3 generational talents; Hasek, Lidstrom and Jagr.

So to answer the OP's question, yes Lidstrom is a generational talent.
