Best Defenceman Of The Early Season

One thing I enjoy is watching the first few games and picking out the unexpected players who play like superstars. Its always suprising when a Martin Havlat or a Maxim Afinogenov leads the NHL in points.

However, this pick is not a suprising early season leader. The best defenceman so far this year has been Nicklas Lidstrom. He has seven points in his 8 games and has been logging over 24 minutes per game. His game is right where he left it last year when he won the Norris Trophy.

Perhaps a more interesting question than is Lidstrom the best defender in hockey today (of course he is) is how far up the list of the best all time defencemen has Lidstrom climbed so far?
