Don't know Lidstrom? Imagine a combination of Ed Reed, Ray Lewis, Brian Urlacher, James Harrison, Charles Woodson, and Troy Polamalu; in the Complex Decade, Lidstrom has won as many defensive player of the year awards in the NHL as those guys have in the NFL combined. Lidstrom's also won two Stanley Cups with the Red Wings in that time (becoming the first European-born player to captain a Cup champ in '08), picked up an Olympic gold with Sweden in '06, and become the NHL's active leader in games played.
