I dont know how someone can put Blake with Carlyle. Sure Randy Carlyle won the Norris in '81 and had one good year after that but even it that year he wasnt even on Team Canada for the Canada Cup. Blake is a better defenseman than Carlyle ever was. He's got one Norris, one first team all-star selection ('98) and two second team selections ('00, '01, '02). Throw in a Cup in Colorado. Plus a guy is judged on how well he played against his peers. He's not in Pronger's class, or even Niedermayer's but he's in the HOF IMO.
For most of the past decade he's been better than Neidermayer.
