Lidstrom is a great d-man. prob the best in the game 2day, if not ever, but Mike Green had a tremendous season. he plays alongside Ovy, this helps his numbers a lot. Lidstrom also plays w/superstars. he has a few more to his disposal (Hossa, Franzen, Zetterberg, Datsyuk). so the award should go 2 Green. he plays w/less and did more this season. this award, just like all the others, isn't for who has been the best d-man in recent years. it goes 2 who had the best season. Green bye far had the best season, the numbers don't lie. i drafted Green pretty early in my fantasy leagues and some ppl called him a fluke (b/c of his performance last season) he proved all the 'haters' wrong. the NHL wants 2 give the awards 2 the top name players, Lidstrom is that so he gets it. just like Ovy will prob get the Conn Smythe instead of Malkin, the player that deserves it.
