You already know his stats.

You already remember what he did in the biggest games you’ve ever saw.

You know pretty much all there is to know about the greatest defenseman ever to play the game.

Ok, that last line you might fight me on as a lot of people will say Bobby Orr was the greatest, but that’s a different argument for a different blog. In fact I actually might have already written that piece about 2 years ago.

However you might not know this…

Red Wings radio play by play man Ken Kal asked Lidstrom on Wednesday; who the most difficult players that the former captain ever had to defend?

Lidstrom played for 20 seasons where he took part in 1, 564 games, so he has a lot of players to choose from.

Watch the video to find out his answer…
