i think its more 60/40 than 95%. you do make a good point about guys moving around the lineup and the league i didn't really think of that

i really base my argument on two players mark messier and adam graves. it always seemed to me that messier was so dominant on faceoffs when he was playing with graves because graves always seemed to tie up his own man and at the same time move the puck back to the point.

i do agree that some guys are good no matter what. lindors was great playing on the legion of doom with large players and while playing on the fly line with two smaller players.
