Niedermayer Says Stats Point To Lidstrom For Norris

from the NY Times (Sunday edition),
Anaheim's Scott Niedermayer, the reigning Norris Trophy winner, was asked last week who should win this season's award as the league's most valuable defenseman. "You look at Lidstrom," Niedermayer said in a telephone interview, referring to Detroit's Nicklas Lidstrom, a three-time Norris winner, who led all defensemen with 73 points and 59 assists entering Friday's games. "He's doing extremely well in the stat department. I suppose it would be him."
continued Note to Niedermayer and anyone else who thinks stats point to Lidstrom- It is not only the stats, it his play both offensively and defensively that makes him the favorite, although last night was not one of his better games.
