Pierre LeBrun's nice piece on Nick Lidstrom rekindled some thoughts about who was the best blueliner of all time. LeBrun's follow up with Scotty Bowman lends a unique perspective. I appreciate many folks' deep respect for Bobby Orr and the way he manned the blueline, but for me, perhaps owing to the fact that I never saw Orr play, Lidstrom is it. What say you?
