That's not a really good point using the players you picked out.
Yeah, that's true. For whatever reason, though, the chemistry was sporadic. I don't think Granato found a single, consistent line combination that lasted through the year. The defensive pairings saw the most changes, though, with Morris and Skoula out and Boughner, Vaananen and Sauer in. The team never found a way to run on all cylinders and the lifelong Avs were a part of that.
