Many people are pointing out differences between eras, line mates, etc, all of which is interesting for discussion.  The question, though, is which pair would you take.  For me that's #19 and #91 all day every day.  No knock on the "kids," but I'd be hard pressed to find many duos I'd take above them on any roster, let alone the Wings.


(#66 and #68 come to mind... #99 and, well, anyone also)

Yeah.  Thanks a lot, Vernie.  Nice work, ya jerk.

Can we please shelve the "kick the tires," "we like our team," "(player x getting healthy) is our deadline acquisition," and "our PP is our enforcer" jokes alongside "(player y) is lazy and sucks," and "what's to stop Chris Chelios from..." as tired?  I'm begging you, please.  This board needs new material.



PS:  The beard quote is pretty great.

In Topic: Puck Daddy: Trotz Head Coach for Caps

He'll have no issue finding another job.  That guy has done incredibly well despite having scant resources to work with.  I'm not sure he'd do as well in Toronto, where the pressure valve is turned up to 11.  I'd love to see what he could do with all the talent in Edmonton, though.  Talk about a change of venue!


I hate to say it, but if we ever lost Babcock, I'd hope Kenny would give a long hard look at Trotz for our squad.  He's a coach.
