He Does Everything

from Vartan Kupelian of the Detroit News,

In perhaps the highest compliment Lidstrom has ever received, Orr said he sees “some similarities” in their games.

“He does the things I like to see a defenseman do,” Orr said. “He reads the ice—all the great players read the ice—and he does it as well as anybody. There haven’t been many like him when it comes to reading what’s happening. He sees what’s going to happen.

“The way he shoots the puck, passes, anticipates, jumps up—or doesn’t jump up—he does everything.”
