Both know their role, and do the dirty work--as in playing a thankless role, going up against the opposition's top line, excelling on the PK, and making the coach's system work properly. That doesn't make them more talented or more important, but it makes them important to the team's success nonetheless.
My point was to whoever posted that Bulis and Sundstrom could be cast away and replaced by some rookies that think offense-first.
I am getting your point. It is because you wrote that those 2 players were BETTER and fundamental parts of hockey then Koivu and Ribeiro. I like both players by the way, but for me, a great hockey player must be able to put the puck in the net when a great chance occurs.
What are the fundamental parts of hockey by the way?
