lol, well, honestly...before I was 10 was when I was when I was playing an awful lot of NHL 95 with Primeau.

besides, I wanted to put together a really tough grind line. who was our next toughest center?

In all honesty, I think pound for pound Marty Lapointe was a tougher center than Primeau. When I think of Primeau I just always think of this:

He just never had a chance here with Yzerman and Fedorov as the #1 and #2 centers, same as Jimmy Carson, just couldn't get the icetime...

edit: And before you tell me that Lapointe was a RW, he was drafted as a center and played that position in Adirondack and early in his tenure with Detroit. He excelled at a few forward postions.

I really liked Lapointe...I just never saw him play center. And when I think of Probert, I think of this:

Fighting Probert as a young prospect in training camp. Was Lapointe really tougher than that? Primeau put up a ton more points too, and was a #2 overall pick I think (over Jagr)

I did say pound for pound, so yes LaPointe was tougher than Primeau. He was #3 overall and it was a huge mistake of a pick. Especially with all the talent that was drafted that year, but hey, the draft is a gamble.

this is purely an opinion thread, so we're not arguing here...but for me, overall toughness > 'pound-for-pound' toughness'
