The toughest SOB to ever patrol the blueline in the NHL.
That's his claim to fame.

Where did i say Mac was better than Lidstrom? I said my definitive top 4 post Orr, and that Mac was somewhere in the #5 to 15 range.

Eddie Shore has that one sewn up.

Not unless you want to ignore Doug Harvey, Eddie Shore, Red Kelly, Ray Bourque and Denis Potvin, amongst others.

Interestingly, an SI article from a few years ago had Stevens at only #2 in terms of "best hitters of all-time". Leo Boivin, who played most of his career for the Bruins with stints in Toronto, Detroit, Pittsburgh, and Minnesota, was their number 1.

I think the fans have done very well under the new CBA.

My team has a brand new superstar defenseman, Pittsburgh is now a contender and most small markets have added some significant talent.

How have the fans lost?
That is why I ask.

When I read through this thread, the discussion who was the better allround defenseman, Stevens or Lidstrom, is a very interesting one.

I guess all the opinions (and my own) are based on one thing: style

I really think they are both equally good, offensive as well as defensive.
But I choose Lidstrom nine out ten times because in my eyes he´s more appealing to watch.
IMO, Stevens is a bone-breaker, very effective in his own unique way (said without a word of irony), Lidstrom on the other hand is a technical better skater, far more elegant all over the ice.

That´s all there is to it.
You like either one of ´em, but hardly both of them.

Sounds like you'd prefer Boitano over Stevens as well?

No, elegancy has to end somewhere ... and that's probably way before Brian enters the rink...

But a funny remark though !!
