I know that E-W is now the flavor of the week but it just didn't work for us.
actually we pulled it off quite well in 05-06. We were in first place in the division for most of the year. We had alot of skill guys on the team in Jagr, Nylander, Straka, Sykora etc... and played it almost perfectly. Unfortunately jagr and hank got injured late in the season/playoffs which undermined the entire season. Than Sather or Renny decides to try to switch the team to N-S instead of keeping what was working well.
we were only a player or two away. We needed another playmaking center and a PP qb.... hmmm come to think about it we still need that. (Drury is not the answer at center)
