One of the comments was suggesting that Lidstrom should be considered for the MVP: MVP being the most valuable to his team. Who in their right mind would think that Lidstrom is the lynchpin of that team right now. In the past, maybe. Right now? No way.
Lord knows that when think of the Red Wings this year, Lidstrom pops into my mind.
Yeah, a guy whose team is tied at #20 in the league with Philly? for goals against and tied at #14 for points by a defenseman with Girardi should be recognized for his contribution.
