Now that I've been able to take several guys at or near the top of my "always wanted him" list - Richard, Clapper, Boucher, Goring, Bourne, Lonsberry and O'Reilly - and a few players I haven't had since forming the tandem with raleh - Linden, Fleury and Brewer are guys we've always wanted to get - Henderson is near the top of my "always wanted him" list.

Broten was a great pick. When formulating the list for our 13th Fs, he was the one who stood out the most for offensive ability.
It was my mistake. I'm sure Raleh is right. Henderson was mostly a RW.

Broten was a good pick right now. Not as good as Weight, mind you, but good.

He's the guy I was 95% sure I wanted until I took one last look at weight. The only edge I saw for Broten was two more finals appearances which gave him an even more extensive playoff record. Weight's a better passer, neither can really score goals that well, and they have the same two-way game... Weight has better size and grit, though.

Maybe you had Weight pegged as a 3rd/4th line center and not a 13th F, otherwise you'd have to have him ahead of Broten, right?
