All shortlisted guys I was hoping some team would pick.

Didn't know about #99 Joe Lamb. Nice.


Re: Zamuner: I was one of the "huh"'s too. Still, as the years went by I came to terms with it.

Eagles: I think the length of time he lasted showed he was more than a scrub, but yeah, when we get to him, we're really reaching.

Aucoin: maybe I was exaggerating, but top-10 isn't a stretch. For a few years, he was one of the best. In 01-02 he was 8th in norris voting, and in 03-04 he was 5th.

Aucoin I stand by for sure. Eagles and Zamuner, I'll take them down if you stop and think for just a second and then confirm with me that there is no way they're feasible 3rd/4th liners/penalty killers in the MLD.
