from Michael Rosenberg of the Detroit Free Press,
You will never figure him out.
Everybody around the Red Wings says that about Nicklas Lidstrom. Tell them you want to get inside the mind of Lidstrom—to understand his genius, to see what he sees. They laugh or shake their heads.
“It’s impossible to know how he can think that good,” coach Mike Babcock said.
“He’s Picasso,” general manager Ken Holland said. “They think differently. It’s a gift.”
OK, fine. Let’s just observe. Sit in the stands. Watch Lidstrom. Come back and watch again, and again and again, and ... well, admit it: You see nothing. You know you are watching one of the best players in hockey history. But he looks like just another good player to you.
