Pro Sports Wrap - Sports Personality of the Day: Mark Recchi

2010 PSW Norris Trophy

April 23rd 2011 13:32
There were many defensemen that had great seasons this year, and it is extremely difficult for me to pick just one of them. Keith Yandle, Lubomir Visnovsky, Zdeno Chara, Nicklas Lidstrom, Kris Letang, Dustin Byfuglien, Shea Weber, and Christian Ehrhoff were outstanding in the 2010-2011 NHL season. My pick will be given to the guy that was a great defender and a great points-scorer as well.

Detroit Red Wings Nicklas Lidstrom

Nicklas Lidstrom is one of the best players of All-Time, and he has still been incredible as he has gotten older. We all know him for his leadership and stingy defense, and the captain has won the Norris Trophy six times in his career. The 40 year old defenseman recently was named one of the nominees for the Lady Byng trophy, and this is a testament to Lidstrom's sportsmanship. Loui Eriksson and Marty St. Louis are also in the running for the award that Lidstrom has been nominated for six times in his career.

There will be a street 30 miles from Detroit named in Lidstrom's honor. He was second behind Visnovsky in points scored for defensemen with 62. However, Lidstrom was the better player in defense; obviously the main duty for a defenseman. Lidstrom showed his workhose mentality and importance to his team by playing in all 82 games. It's yet another reason why he is a leader for the Wings.

Nicklas Lidstrom is one of the best players in the league on the power play. He is one of the main reasons as to why the Red Wings are tied with the Lightning for the team with the fourth best power play percentage in the league. His efficient offense, great passing, superb special teams ability, smart defense, and key leadership make him my Norris Trophy winner of this year by the slightest edge over Lubomir Visnovsky.
